Does alcohol intoxication raise the seizure threshold since its a sedative or no? Also can it prevent convulsions like other sedatives?
Not intoxicated. The dosage that might be okay would not cause intoxification - it would be very low. Here's info: http://www.epilepsymatters.com/english/lwealcohol.html As it says, if the seizures are not already under good control - it is risky and may bring on a seizure. I'd avoid more than a few sips - small glass of wine w/ food in any case. Talk to your own doctor too. You are special.
