In brief: Stimulants
Be cautious with these drinks.
Many contain high dose caffeine and other stimulants that are excitatory to the brain. Some contain artificial sweeteners that can be toxic to some persons (phenylalanine sensitive). Grapefruit flavoring may interfere with the absorption of your regular seizure medication.
