How to handle a hangover?

Do you find that being hungover increase your risk of seizures? If so how do you combat this? Being hungover got me feels very similar to how I would feel before a seizure anyways and I’m not a fan.

Hi Ellie, I used to find my seizures did noticeably increase in number and intensity when I’d been drinking alcohol, particularly red wine. Some of this was due to lack of sleep and water as a result of consuming too much alcohol. When I have one glass of wine it feels like I’ve had five! Result of the mix with medication also I believe. So, I cut right back, still really enjoy myself but am much more careful now with the volume of alcohol I consume and ensuring I get enough sleep after a night out. I hope that helps. Katie
