Abstract: 
Patients with medically uncontrolled seizures present a major challenge to physicians, health care system and society. To increase the likelihood of a positive outcome, physicians must systematically approach patients with apparently intractable epilepsy.It is important to distinguish between modifiable causes of uncontrolled seizures and non-modifiable ones.Some patients may have unsatisfactory seizure control because of non-compliance, or ignoring precipitating or triggering factors.Other seizures may be intractable due to non-epileptic causes. Finally seizures persist because of inappropriate treatment, i.e. the wrong drug has been prescribed for a particular seizure type, or a correctly selected agent was prescribed in insufficient dosage.The best examples of endogenous predictors of intractability are structural brain disease which can not be repaired surgically, progressive metabolic or degenerative encephalopathy, and Lennox- Gastaut syndrome.Successful treatment of intractable epilepsy may be achieved through rational combination of antiepileptic drug therapy, use of adjunctive agents, dietary and hormonal manipulation and even surgery.Considering socio-economic, cultural, and environmental related problems etc, in this article rational approach to intractable seizures is being presented to achieve more success in the management of refractory epilepsy.
