Does anyone have experience with the ketogenic diet for epilepsy? If so do medications become more potent on the diet?

In brief: No
Ketogenic diet was introduced long before current antiepiletic drugs became available.
Ketogenic diet works well for some individuals with intractable epilepsy allowing tapering down the AED they have been on.
