Openness and honesty about Epilepsy is important. A child's teacher
should be informed about the type of seizure, what they look like,
their frequency, and any first aid requirements. There are advantages
and disadvantages to telling an employer. What you tell them may depend
upon how comfortable you are discussing your Epilepsy, the kinds of
seizures involved, and the type of job. An employer may ask if you have
a medical problem that would make you unable to do your job, but they
may not ask generally about your medication condition.
