Really concerned that this allergy medication brought on first and only seizure of my life. Had started taking the medication. Than did not take it for a day and than seizure occurred. I'm seeking out knowledge and experience if anyone else wants to impart similar experiences.
I am trying to decide to keep taking or not, taking the full recommend dose of Pro-15 causes seizures, so I stopped for two weeks, and going to try half the amount, only one pill in the evening with a meal.
