Re: Topamax Question
I found when I would drink, be it a few beers or a serving of liquor and mixed drinks, I am fine as long as I space my medication and drinking properly. I'll have my AM meds, food, then go out for the night, and when I return make sure I have a couple of hours between last drink and meds.
Be it Teg Dilantin Keppra, or Topa Teg Keppra. Never had problems with meds causing issues unless I didn't eat or failed to space enough time between meds and when I went to the bar. Only symptom was I felt intoxicated early (2 drinks). Just know your limit and what your body can handle.
Usually with Topa you have to drink more water than normal. That can be one of the factors to being intoxicated easially and the headache re: TKM's post.
I don't encourage drinking for those of you on meds, but **IF** you do, know what your body can handle AT HOME before you go out. You wouldn't want to have a GM at a pub or restraunt due to drinking. The pub I go to knows I have seizures and has no problem serving me. Best advice is to do just that, let them know just in case.
