8 Must-Have Items For Epilepsy-Friendly Road Trips

Road trips can be fun and filled with exciting adventures! To avoid bumps in the road (pun intended), it’s important for people living with epilepsy to pack carefully and methodically.

When packing for a road trip, make sure to include these items:


Pack plenty of light colored, loose fitting, and breathable garments. Bring along accessories like hats and sunglasses to shield yourself from bright sunlight which can sometimes trigger seizures.

Comfort items:

Pack items like a travel pillow, blanket, and stress-relief tools such as a stress ball or fidget toy, essential oils, or even audiobooks and podcasts to help manage potential triggers.

Water and snacks:

Stay hydrated and maintain stable blood sugar levels with water and nutritious snacks.


Be sure that you have an ample supply of your epilepsy medication.

Medical alert ID:

Wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace indicating your epilepsy condition.

Seizure diary:

Keep track of seizure activity during your trip.

First-aid kit:

Include basic first aid supplies such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, and gloves.


Bring along books, music, or games to stay occupied during long stretches of travel.

Pack these essentials, hit the road with confidence and make unforgettable memories on your epilepsy-friendly journey!
