Help? What should my limits be drinking with epilepsy


I haven’t had a seizure In 4 years but I’m getting tired of always being the sober friend at parties. I wanna pop molly and drink at the parties. I’m going to be 18 this year and still haven’t been drunk. Help????


drinking will never coincide

drinking will never coincide with your medications/epilepsy. that is a given. it’s a package deal with the crappy hand we got dealt to keep it completely real. and i honestly don’t know how this chat room works and this is the first question i’ve responded to. but drinking isn’t all it’s played out to be. i have had a few drinks on my medication. and it is played out. and who the hell wants to pop more pills than they already take given the circumstances yunno!! it’s really just the hype and it will pass. and you can always do what is slowly legalizing state by state & it helps most of us. ya dig. i hope i helped a little. i don’t know your situation. i really just based it off of mine. which i still have seizures, on 4 medications, and a tad bit older. but i mean. whatever helps.
