    I don't recommend driving with Epilepsy... you should listen to your doctor also I don't know what you meant by 'go orders'.

      My husband is in the military and has to leave for 3 weeks. I don't have uncontrolled seizures and no one can tell me how to find any transportation. I didn't ask if I should follow ridiculous restrictions I obviously have no choice but our children still have to eat. If I can't find transportation I have to drive there is no way around it. My dr is a moron and it's too late to change because she already put stuff in my chart. I haven't had a seizure in months.

      I was in hospital with a strangulated bowel and I took a seizure because of the blockage and meds not getting through.  I too am stopped driving.   I know it's frustrating but that's the law.

      No I'm outside of city limits no one will deliver anything out here at all. The only thing I can get is dry food from walmart. pay extra and wait on it to get here. Even then I can't get mine and my daughter's prescriptions.

      Everyone keeps saying well no one can recommend going against medical advice. I would rather not but what are we supposed to do there should be laws for the disabled making it mandatory to provide transportation for us. If my kids can't eat or go to the dr it's neglect, if I drive them it's against the law. Something is very wrong there!! What should we do? There is no Uber service, no taxi service, there is nothing!!! No food delivery of any kind whatsoever!

    I am assuming you are not in the U.K.? I know over over here you cannot drive for a year after any type of seizure. I think if you are diagnosed over here with night time seizures you can drive during the day. My Dad had epilepsy and in his day you had to go 10 years without a seizure. My son also has epilepsy. (He's only 7 now) but I noticed in his notes that he can drive after a year of no seizures. (Obviously not till he's 17) good luck.
