According to WHO, up to 50 million people suffer from epilepsy worldwide, but only 25% of them are provided with adequate medical treatment. Meanwhile, modern medicines make it possible to completely free a person from seizures in 70% of cases. Such drugs are effective and low-toxic, do not affect the psyche and mood.
