Get with your doctor: I'm going to assume that getting relief by yourself has not stopped you from misbehavior in ways that are troublesome to yourself and others and/or that you have an obsession with erotica that interferes with your doing what you know you need to. Sex is powerful, your doctor has heard it all before, and knows how to help with rx and reprogramming. It'll be good -- do it.

Chemical way.: Anti epileptics work at molecular level by controlling ionic channel gate in cell membrane like na, k, ca, nmda. Etc thereby altering excitability of cell membrane. It is a very advanced detailed science.

I would not: Galantamine (galantamine (galantamine hydrobromide) hydrobromide) increases cholinergic activity in the brain, which can cause more dreams. Like any medicine, galantamine (galantamine hydrobromide) can have side effects. I would not recommend taking it to cause more vivid dreams.

Seizures and diet: Yes it is possible to change some seizures with diet. For many years some patients have been treated with what is called a keto=genic diet, which has controlled their seizures. Talk to your doctor to see if you are a candidate for this diet and if so ask for a referral.
