i have night time epilepsy (complex partial and tonic clonic seizures) im on 4 different types of epileptic drugs and my neurologist has told me i can have the odd drink or 2 once in a blue moon but as long as i still take my medication. Im not a regular drinker, but last night i had a few drinks and had a really bad seizure. So that has certainly put me of drinking, i will be having a brain operation later this year cause im sick to death of having to take so many epileptic drugs a day, my epilepsy hasn't been under control for the past 4 years, but my seizures are not as bad as they use to be, well not as bad as last nights seizure, other times after iv had a seizure iv woken up somewhere and don't even rememberd how i got there, the worse side affects i mainly get is depersonalisation, Has anyone else ever experienced symptoms like this or even been told that they can have the odd drink on there medication and still had really bad seizures after. plus does your epilepsy really affect your life?
