Hello,

You are definitely advised AGAINST consuming any alcohol since this will INACTIVATE your antiseizure medication and elevate your risk of seizure significantly.

If your doctor has advised against driving then, I believe it is a very reasonable request and you should certainly follow that advice. As far as not doing "any" physical activities.

I would talk to the physician again because I don't restrict my patients from ALL activities.

However, clearly there are SOME activities which should not be done such as climbing on ladders, scaffolds, working on roofs, operating heavy or hazardous equipment or machinery, driving tow motors or ANY type of vehicle, including bicycles.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
