Question: What does epilepsy have to do with alcohol consumption? Why do they ask you if you have epilepsy when they pull you over for DUI? What happens if you DO have epilepsy, and you take medicine for this disorder. Also, does taking a anti-narcolepsy drug have any effect on driving?

Answer: Epilepsy and alcohol consumption affects if the medication you're taking for epilepsy will work. I don't know why coppers ask your 1st question,but you CAN get a license to drive if you haven't had any seizures in 2 years and they are controlled by medicine. The only effect taking a anti-narcolepsy drug has on your driving or on you to be exact is it may make you sleepy.
