ITINERAIRE THERAPEUTIQUE DES EPILEPTIQUES DANS L'ARRONDISSEMENT DE DJIDJA (DEPARTEMENT DU ZOU) AU BENIN

Abstract : Epilepsy is a universal and chronical disease but unequally from various causes. This disease has also some mystical causes which are misunderstanding by people.
Thus, the access to antiepileptic drugs is difficult so that people suffering of this disease do not treat it.
In order to identify therapeutic way a transversal investigation has been done from January 10th and February 11th 2005 at DJIDJA, ZOU department.
The results are:
• At the first seizure, 76.3% take care early of that disease.
• 55.3% have seen the traditional healer.
• The traditional treatment has many components such as: by medicine and some spices, have their meals without certain food.
• About antiepileptic drugs, only Phenobarbital 50mg was accessible in the drugs stores, which worker.
• The weak on the socioeconomic level, the socio cultural aspects of the disease and the far distance between the village and the hospital are the limits of the use of antiepileptic drugs.
The results suggest that epilepsy is considered as natural disease; but people to recover by traditional healer most of the time. So the medical treatment comes secondarily. Then it's urgent to make sensibilisation in order to promote use of antiepileptic drug. This will help enormously epilepsy treatment in villages
