I am curious if anyone with epilepsy has used L-Theanine to help with sleep. Our sons Holistic Dr. has suggested we try a very low dose as it will not interact with his klonopin, and it might help him sleep better.
So is anyone else with Epilepsy using this Amino Acid?

Hello Laurie

L-Theanine has a relaxing effect but from what I heard from my doctor it doesn't have that drowsiness effect. Now, for epilepsy and sleep issues I would suggest Endoca Hemp products for it has both anticonvulsant and anxiolytic properties. It can reduce seizures and it also have that calming effect. It is also been proven to induce sleep. Just like L-Theanine it also a herbal alternative approach.

Hello all,

I am currently awaiting a week of eeg ambulatory monitoring.

A few months ago I started waking with a severe unexplainable smell that lasted seconds and then on being fully awake I lose all recent memory. Still know who I am and where I am but not happened within the last few days and weeks. This lasts for 10-15 minutes then gradually all is fine. This occurred every two weeks but now it is once a week.

Neurologist does think it is some form of epilepsy that occurs before, during or after sleep and I am having eeg monitoring in a months time.

I seriously think it is transient epileptic amnesia from what I have read. Has anyone else have experience of this.

Many Thanks
