» Shift the patient away from any dangerous place/object and loosen all the tight clothing.
» The patient may be confused after the fit, and may need to the reassured with sympathy but without fuss.
» Help the patient so that he/she can continue his/her activity.
» Transfer the patient to a doctor/hospital if the patient gets recurrent fits, has injury or does not become conscious.

» DO NOT attempt to force anything between the teeth, as a spoon or wooden piece can break the teeth while a cloth can cause choking. Even if the tongue gets bitten, it usually heals in the next few days.

» DO NOT allow people to crowd around the convulsing person.
