Does anyone else with epilepsy have tweaking and head pain when they drink alcohol?

      Speak with your Dr. I have had epilepsy for 35 years and been through SO many meds. I have not taken a single one that did not interact poorly with alcohol. I personally also have seizures when I drink, so I just quit. It was tough, but totally worth it!

      i'm not exactly sure, you may be able to google search if there's any interactions between lamictal and alcohol but if not calling the pharmacy is usually a good bet!

      i see you're on keppra, it's strongly advised not to drink on keppra bc there's a bad interaction with alcohol. most neurologists will say not even a single drop, mine said i could have a small glass of wine once or twice a year for special occasions

        @Phoebe23 I'm taking lamotrigine/lamictal, does that have the same effect as Keppra?
