Hello. Thank you for posting.

Modern epilepsy medications are usually very good and effective, seizures can often be reduced to zero in many (though not all) epilepsy patients. For epileptics who are healthy apart from epilepsy, their life expectancy might be the same as anybody else. Your doctor may have a more definitive answer for you.
