Hi..... about 60% of people who are untreated have no further seizures during the 24 months following their first seizure. The outlook (prognosis) for most people with epilepsy is good. Approximately 70% go into remission for 5 years on or off treatment.... About 20% to 30% develop chronic epilepsy (long term epilepsy) - these people are generally treated with Anti epileptic drugs.....
