Hello. I have juvenile epilepsy. I had a grand mal seizure almost 4 years ago. I was put on keepra 1000mg and I have been seizure free since then. I am very complient with my medication. I haven't had any grand mal seizure since then. The only little thing i have is the random eye fluttering which only happens once a month, if even that. This only occurs if I get extremely tired. I usually go to bed around 11pm or even earlier just to make sure I dont have those. Othe then that I am fine. However, I was never told about drinking. One doctor I had which i no longer go too didn't mention it and then this new doctor i go to is telling me I can never even touch a drink. I haven't had a seizure so I find this hard to believe. His assistant said I could have one drink. I am really confused now on what I can do. Since I am complient with my medication and have been seizure free 4 years in Jan. can I drink? and I am not talking about getting drunk but I would not mind having a drink or 2. No more then that though.
Any help would be great.
