    Seizure

    6 1/2 yrs ago. I was dieting and was trying diet pills. Had a seizure. Was tested. EEG. Scan etc. Was told to stay away from what I had been doing A few weeks ago Iwas talking with someone and they commented they were going to by a monster energy drink. I had never had one before. Bought one a had it with ice. Drank it around 2:30 to 4:30 on ice. Had dinner. Went out for a bit. On the way had a seizure. I had not done anything different but had the drink. Need some input

    RE: Seizure

    Both diet pills and energy drinks contain stimulants which stimulate your central nervous system. I'd definitely avoid both. They're both extremely hard on your cardiovascular system and can trigger your seizures. Avoid stimulants all together.

        Thanks. That’s what I’m doing. I didn’t think the one drink could do that. But I’m only 5 feet tall It was in the pop section
