Mushrooms ??

Fri, 02/14/2020 - 15:08
So I figured this would be the best site to ask instead of people who do have epilepsy but I was wondering if magic mushrooms one dose once would do anything I have grandmaul quite often and complex as well 2 times a week and right temporal lobe epilepsy but I'm wondering because I've always kinda wanted to for some reason and wanna try them but because of my med dose kinda worries me but I also have to take three doses a day so I thought this would be the best sight to ask and get honest answers In the morning I take 100 mg of lamotrigin,,200 mg of lacosamide At 7:30 PM I take the same as in the morning At 9:30pm I take 450 mg of dilantin But continue to have seizures so was wondering would it do anything or health benefits or anything would happen ???
