Epilepsy is neither a mysterious nor an incurable disease. It can be successfully treated through regular use of medicine, said Assistant Professor Dr Shahid Mukhtar of Neurology Department, Lahore General Hospital, here Sunday.
In an interview, he said that all government hospitals have proper medical facilities for diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy. However, he regretted that around two million people in Pakistan are still suffering from this disease.
Dr Shahid Mukhtar said that due to illiteracy, awareness level about epilepsy was very low in the country.
