Hello

The person should get their meds as prescribed.

Any hint of seizures should be reported to the doctor.

Any seizure should prompt a visit to the emergency room , urgent care or doctors office, if a short seizure and the person is OK.

Persistent seizures or seizure with significant post ictal state must go to the ER.

Protocols vary, and you must act on the protocol given by the doctors office.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
