Alcohol and Seizures?

Hello, I'm a nursing student here. Ok so I have been doing some research on epilepsy for a presentation in class. On of the subtopics is seizures in relation to alcohol. I have been asking this question as well as trying to search this question and cannot get any solid answer. Every answer is different and everyone claims their answer is correct. The question is, is it possible for someone to have a seizure while drinking alcohol? I am NOT referring to withdrawal because everyone immediately... Alcohol and Seizures?

CONCLUSIONS AND SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: With the increasing prevalence of medical marijuana legalization, there is increased use of medicinal marijuana. Studies of cannabidiol and marijuana for epilepsy have been highly publicized, leading to its off-label use for treatment. There is limited evidence to suggest that the cannabinoids may also induce a seizure. This study found that CUD is independently associated with a 56% increased likelihood of epilepsy hospitalization and this association persists even after adjusting for other substance use disorders and confounders. (Am J Addict 2019;1-9). PMID: 31124592 [PubMed...

The use of any benzodiazepines during early pregnancy may increase the risk of miscarriage, according to astudy published today inJAMA Psychiatry.“The findings suggest that health care clinicians should carefully evaluate the risk-benefit ratio of benzodiazepines for the treatment of insomnia and mood or anxiety disorders in early pregnancy,” wrote Odile Sheehy, M.Sc., of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Sainte-Justine in Montreal and colleagues. “[I]f benzodiazepines are needed, they should be prescribed for short durations.”Sheehy and colleagues analyzed data from the Quebec Pregnancy Cohort, ...

Conclusion: GBP appears to be effective in the treatment of some forms of anxiety disorders, and alcohol withdrawals or dependence, albeit it is effective often as an adjunctive medication rather than as a monotherapeutic agent. More rigorous larger clinical trials are required to resolve the contradictory existing data for the efficacy of GBP. It is worth noticing that numerous clinical studies on this subject are open-label trials, which are inherently less rigorously analyzed. Therefore, more extensive large randomized controlled trials are required to examine not only the effectiveness of GBP but also its safety and tolerance.

Conclusion: It is the severity of PTSD symptoms in PNES patients that differentiates them from ES patients, although exposure to traumatic events is also frequent in ES patients. We demonstrated that suicidal ideation and suicide risk are equally high in the ES and PNES groups. Therefore, both groups require extreme vigilance in terms of suicidal risk.IntroductionA variety of interactions between epilepsy and psychiatric disorders have been described. One major interaction concerns the occurrence of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNESs). As many as 30% of the cases in epilepsy centers for drug-resistant epilepsy appear...

Conclusion: Patients with isolated thalamic atrophy were at a higher risk for not reaching 2-year NEDA-3 and for EDSS increase than patients with no identified brain atrophy. The groups were clinically indistinguishable. A single measurement of thalamic and whole brain atrophy could help identify patients needing most effective therapies from early on. Introduction The quantification of brain atrophy by MRI has become an increasingly important part of evaluating neurodegeneration in MS (1, 2). Atrophy measures can reflect the damage on the central nervous system (CNS) caused by the pathological processes of the dis...

ConclusionsThis study provides insights on how PWE experience provision of relevant information about epilepsy. Although most PWE considered that they obtained information on general epilepsy issues, most PWE interested in information on non-medical treatments and psychosocial issues reported that they did not obtain the information they wanted.

Conclusion: There may be an association between schizophrenia and HNPP. In observational studies, the deletion of interest (chromosome 17p12) was nearly 10 times more common in schizophreniform patients than in controls. This potential association could be pathophysiologically explained by the role of PMP22, which is mainly expressed in the peripheral nervous system. However, PMP22 mRNA and protein can also be found in the brain. PMP22 seems to play an important role in regulating cell growth and myelination, functions that are disturbed in schizophrenia. Such a connection obviously cannot be clarified on the basis of one ...
