Epilim CR200
My husband has epilepsi- om Epilim CR200 for 10 years but still has seizures ones a month. Does energade or lucozade effects it, as he doesn''''t drink or eat anything with caffeine?? And then he also takes his tablets 3 together at night before bedtime in stead of 1 3x per day- does this make a difference?

Hi Linda

The erergade should be fine, but the tabs should be taken as directed to ensure a constant blood level of his medication. The CR tablets (controlled release) is however meant to be taken once or twice a day (in case of higher doses).
