Cluster Seizures

Hi all,

New here, my Dad lives with epilepsy. Last August he ended up having a tonic chronic seizure for the first time in 11 years. We thought we adjusted the dosage properly for his medication but this morning he ended up having another one. We went to the hospital and got home and within a few hours he ended up having another one. This would be the first time he has had back to back seizures.

I'm wondering what exactly is the likelihood of him having a third one? How can we best prevent any more? and has anyone else experienced something similar? All thoughts are welcome!
