Hi,

It is better to avoid alcohol. Alcohol is an independent cause of seizures, and in a person like you, seizures can get precipitated due to alcohol. Moreover, alcohol can interact with epilepsy medicines such as phenytoin. So, please avoid alcohol.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
