    Um, yeah. Don't take the pills.

    I know nothing about drugs. What I do know is that epilepsy is a malfunction of chemical transmission of signals in the brain and the central nervous system across synapse gaps. If a chemical substance which affects the brain and the synapses is introduced, it could feasibly induce fitting.

    She knows this, she's an epileptic. Don't be so risky with your own life.

    In terms of dealing with it, there's not much you can do. Try and loosen clothing, especially around the neck, and clear an area for her to fit safely. Cushion the head if possible. Call an ambulance if the fit is serious; she may need it.

    well aren't we coming across some prize pricks tonight, that is a stupid question and one i can not believe you are asking. STOP TAKING THEM its the only way, otherwise we'll pick up the sun one day and they'll be anothe ecsatsy death and another notch for the anti pill brigade, its harsh on her granted, but for god's sake <IMG SRC="mad.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    My mate used to suffer from epilepsy through lack of sleep and fatigue, both of which can be caused by doing drugs.

    Ecstasy and stimulants in general are going to make your mate more prone to these attacks. The simple and only safe answer is not to do them.

    Dont do them! simple.

    There is no way to reduce the fits she has or stopping them, without stopping taking pills. Its unfortunate for her but these are the choices.

    get her help to stop taking drugs. I'm sure her fits wont stop but if she already has fits it's certainly not good for her to put more stress on herself

    its all very well shouting at me but i can see why she refuses to not stop all her mates are doing it and its unfair as we told her to do them she had a great time and doesnt understand how scary it is for us that have to shove a spoon down her throat and try to help her. all i wanted to know was if there was anyway at all that i could try n help her cos i know she shud stop but simply she wont! <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Well apart from telling her to stop there is nuthing u can really do to change her mind, u just gotta hope 1 day she see sense, or if shes unlucky she havea really bad fit that will make her change her ways.

    Taking pills WILL increase the chances of her having a fit
