Can certain types of alcohol effect epilepsy more than others?

Generally no. Alcohol is alcohol, and the same amount is present in a shot (1 1/2 oz) of 40% whiskey or other distilled spirits, 12 oz of beer or 5 oz of usual table wine. There are people who may be sensitive to the congeners in drinks, which give it color, taste, body etc, so a seizure may be more likely if they drink red wine than if they drink beer. Alcohol also interacts with drugs used to treat it. Dont.
Doubtful. Alcohol is alcohol. Drinking and epilepsy just don't go together. Amount of alcohol and potency of alcohol may have some impact but back to first lline.
