Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

It is not advisable to take medications for epilepsy after consuming alcohol.
The side effect of the medicine may get worsened by alcohol and also the effect of alcohol may increase due to the medicine.

Though limited amount of alcohol may not cause any serious side effects, I would still advice against taking them together.

I hope that answers your question.
