What should I ask my new neurologist? My old pediatric neurologist retired so I'm seeing an adult(?) one. What should I ask her? The only current questions I have are pertaining to possibly drinking and/or smoking with my meds, and discussing birth control. Any other advice? I had seen my last neurologist for about 3 years, and he was very informative but sometimes appointments felt rushed.

      @hail_czer CBT is it? Helps people but it's better eaten than smoked

      It’s not a good idea to to drink or smoke with epilepsy. It can trigger seizures and make them and make the worse.

One suggestion is to write down any questions or concerns you have prior to your appointment so you can refer to that list during your visit. This could include questions about how your medications might interact with alcohol, smoking, or birth control. It's also important to discuss any side effects you've been experiencing from your current medication. If you felt rushed during previous appointments, you might want to ask your new neurologist for more detailed explanations or for more time to discuss your condition and treatment options.
