Recurrent means you have a seizure more than once.

Antiepileptic Drug Withdrawal at ≥16 years of age and a diagnosis other than juvenile myoclonic epilepsy may be independent risk factors for seizure recurrence after drug withdrawal in adolescent patients 1).

Pregabalin was associated with a relative reduction in seizure burden in neurocritical ill patients with recurrent seizures, especially those with cyclic seizures, and may be considered in the therapeutic arsenal for refractory seizures. Whether this effect is mediated via modulation of spreading depolarization requires further study 2).
