Is there any Protein Powder that will not interfere with Epilepsy or medication ???

Is there any Protein Powder that will not interfere with Epilepsy or medication

Hi I have found that most of the Protein powders out there interfere in some way or anther either with my epilepsy or my anti epilepsy medication.

I am taking Lamictal = 150 mgs per day & Keppra = 2,000 mgs per day

Does anyone know of a company that makes a Protein powder that is O.K.


Thanks Craig

I would ask your neuro. I've never heard of protein powder affecting epilepsy meds or epilepsy itself.

The only thing my neuro told me to avoid was anti-histamines, cold medications and alcohol.

I currently use a Protein powder, In fact I even have epilepsy ( Simple partial Complex )
The product DOES NOT cause a siezure, Thank goodness this item was given to me.

If you'd like more information on where I get it/ The price etc.... Please dont hesitate to ask.

I'm so glad I did the research ( just like you are) to help prevent a spell.
