Answer

The main complication of TSC requiring long-term medical therapy is epilepsy. Antiepileptic medications (AEDs) are the mainstay of therapy for patients with TSC. Unfortunately, no one medical treatment gives satisfactory relief for all or even most patients. A combination of medical treatment modalities frequently is required.
