What causes epilepsy?

Although approximately 70 percent of all cases of epilepsy have no known cause, there are several factors shown to cause seizures in people with the disease. Heavy alcohol consumption, missing prescribed medications, lack of sleep, cocaine and ecstasy use, and taking drugs that interfere with seizure medications can result in epileptic seizures, according to WebMD.
