I have never had any food restrictions that could cause
me to have seizures.Maybe for some if they have high
blood pressure or diabetes that can sometimes bring on
seizures.I do know that aspartame in alot of your diet
sodas and foods can bring on a seizure.I do stay away
from diet sodas,just in case.

Some medications recomend keeping away from specific products (grapefruit is a common one) . Read the printout with your med/s and see if it states anything to avoid. HOWEVER I will comment on that in my experiences.
From what I have found out on my own with TegretolXR, one of my meds. They recomend people on it stay away from Grapefruit juice. I found out you can have it as long as you don't take it with the med or close to the time frame of the med. This spacing means a few hours IN MY CASE. You don't want the juice causing adverse effects on the casement of the medication.
As for food reactions I never had problems with that before, on any of the medications or combo's of meds.
Just thought I would comment on the pasta,rice,potatoes
incidence with you.My mom does have diabetes and all those
that you stated(too many carbs)can even make my mom's
sugar go sky high and she will sometimes feel a little dizzy.
Have you ever had your sugar checked,they say that diabetes
can cause seizures.I am not a doctor by no means,just thought
I would let you know some of my family's experiences.My mom's
doctor did tell her because I have Epilepsy that there is a small
chance she could have a seizure if her sugar was to ever get too
out of control and she was having a bunch of anxiety attacks for
years before the right doctor diagnosed her with the diabetes,but
she has never had a seizure yet.
I have found that diet is helping play a huge part in helping my daughter fight her seizure disorder. There is evidence that removing gluten, casein, soy, and corn helps many. There are many sites that will confirm this.
