|Title:||Heavy coffee drinking and epilepsy|
|Abstract:||Dietary habits have been rarely associated with seizure frequency in patients with epilepsy. We report a case of a man with a partial symptomatic epilepsy whose daily habit of heavy coffee drinking was associated with an increased seizure frequency. This patient witnessed a dramatic decrease in the frequency of his seizures after stopping coffee ingestion. Caffeine is a global stimulant and the reduction of its intake may help in the treatment of epilepsy. (C) 2003 BEA Trading Ltd. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.|
