There is not direct link between oxetol and drinking. It is good that you have not been drinking since the diagnosis. In general drinking is not good for a person who had seizures. Alcohol can increase your predisposition to have seizures. The seizures are caused by abnormal neuronal electrical activity and alcohol can increase that electrical excitability. I would advice you to stay away from alcohol.
Good luck.
