Thanks for the query

I like it that you are very clear with your questions. I will answer it one by one.

1. Anti seizure medication only prevents seizure, it does not cure it. Think of it as anti hypertensive or anti diabetic medication which only control the disease but does not cure it
2. If you miss one time there is a possibility of recurrence of seizure. Please note that anti seizure medications are tapered based on number of years of seizure free living so by missing a dose you might compromise this situation
3. Alcohol intoxication might itself induce a seizure
4. You can meet Dr P T Acharya in M S Ramaiah Memorial Hospital, Bangalore, Mathikere on tuesday, thursday and saturday

I hope I have answered your query
