Ahem...I am a bad girl. I don't drink often. Special occasions, and very little like one beer, but no hard A. I have a friend who takes a ton of meds for HIV. He laughed at me when I turned down a glass of wine, and just said don't get drunk. The meds will make tolerance lower. That is a part of why it says no alcohol. It can also sneak up on you. You don't have to listen to me. Just know someone out there doesn't have seizures from it. Yeah...dont tell my doctor.

it depends on what you have, how long you have seizures for, and residence. every single med out there (pain meds to seizure meds) said do not drink alcohol. i think thats because of the side effects of the meds. take me (for example) i have food seizures and i only drink wine on occasion. any other alcohol make me ether rash or seize. i was a kid when i had my first seizure and experimented with drinks around 21. as a result, i can take around 1-2 glasses per day. if you do drink, be very VERY careful!
