I know that it's not a good idea to seek medical advice here, but I just want to ask about whether or not the option even exists. If you would recommend something particular, I would definitely consult with my physician before taking it. My seizures are not epileptic.

Many thanks!

The Vegan Society UK provides this statement about medicines:

The Vegan Society DOES NOT recommend you avoid medication prescribed to you by your doctor. [...] What you can do is ask your GP or pharmacist to provide you, if possible, with medication that does not contain animal products such as gelatine or lactose.

Asking your pharmacist for gelatine-free capsules is your best option. Gelatine is not an active ingredient in most medications, so it's possible that alternatives may be available in your area.


Im not medical expert, also new in this area but but you can check:



I can add few words tomorrow if you are interested

Edit: As seizures - they may often come from past external enviroment (bad past, like war veterans nice example), or current external environment (we bought ticket to cinema but too snowy road - we need to stay at home).

Natural reaction against danger is fight, living mechanism.

True problem is, when building environment where DANGER is present - its very energy consuming.

Serotonin, is like "good feedback". I did one thing - check feedback. Many sources are present in article(s). Its not about "must to do", its about good to do :-)

For example, many cultures, states - were creating/building good things in past. For example nowadays we see huge things around us - for example power plants, electricity. It took many years of many ppl dedicated will/love to create such things.

We naturaly see, how much income these things generate, how much good electricity power they do provide.

One must always look at process of creating things. It provide "sure ness". If i know HOW TO CREATE something, i can recreate it by huge amount. Many "good things/world" around us, are just "good things".

I did usually assume, its "system" providing thing. But its really not, its bottom. Many companies, were build by few ppl which believed and work in product. Companies always relies on good heart working ppl.. Thats why they work the most :D From shortterm experience we can live from air, doing nothing, but after a while, our life is like given time we can only accept.

In shortterm - fight can be good. In longterm - we can live only by building good things.

As serotonine is "good feel", it helps us feeling good, to provide good resource to build something :-) Many ppl around the globe, try to fight the system .. maby nourishing peace in our everyday life can do the same, but only after some time.. Simple things take little time .. bigger things more time :-) as planting one carrot and 100 :-)

building good world around us ... / going into war

i feel 1st option is more longterm from time / goodness perspective.
