I’ve been experiencing nocturnal seizures, so since seizures during sleep do not endanger other persons is it correct to conclude that for a patient who has seizures only nocturnal seizures no medications are needed?

There are several reasons why nocturnal seizures should be treated. Practically most persons with nocturnal seizures eventually do have one during the daytime and seizures may be potentially harmful if untreated too. Theoretically there is the strong possibility that uncontrolled seizures may cause damage to parts of the brain. That is why most epileptologists would treat nocturnal seizures, even if a person has never had daytime episodes.
