Can drinking coffee affect your epilepsy in anyway

If you were to talk to your neurologist about this they would rather you not drink anything with caffeine. It can possibly trigger seizures.

coffee has caffeine in it and too much will make you have seizures. i cant have coffee but t can have tea. i think its the amount of caffeine. coffee has a lot of caffeine in it where tea has a little bit of caffeine. its all up to you. some people can take it while some (like me) do not.

Well my neurologist let’s me have a beer at 5pm & then a glass or 2 of Sauvignon Blanc wine each night, if I’m ok!! Red wine is terrible.
