Is Doing A Juice Cleanse Dangerous For Seizures?

Is Doing A Juice Cleanse Dangerous For Seizures?

I have been thinking of doing a three-day juice cleanse, but it just crossed my mind it could be bad for seizure control after the pamphlet mentioned it was important to still ingest sodium while doing the cleanse. Has anyone had experience with, or done, a juice cleanse before? None of the juices have grapefruit in them, it is a mix of fruits, veggies, and coconut milk. Thanks!!

Swallowing Medications Without Water?

Swallowing Medications Without Water?

Does anyone take their medications without water?
The reason why I ask is because I constantly see actors in tv shows ,movies who just grab their pills and swallow without drinking any water and I'm thinking does anyone ever do that in real life because honesty if I even tried that I would probably choke or have that uncomfortable feeling that something is stuck in my throat.
