- Does indigestion cause seizure?
in 22 years of seizure a good amount of water and sleep will help. Relax the eyes is important. Tegretol xr is the best drug for me. The only negative is I have to increase the amount taken every few years. I am on 1600mg a day now....Please share with me what you know.

- Does the use of probiotics interfere with the effects of concerta?
I don't drink milk/milk products so I need a probiotic, I am using concerta to study and it's helping but I am getting flu quite often. I drink lots of caffeine too-need it for concentration & energy. My diet is impeccable otherwise-no wheat, no sugar, no milk. Exercise all the time
