NAC was giving me seizures?


I have been suffering from seizures since 2018, I have had 5 episodes since then. My Doctors  have done a multitude of tests and have found nothing. My neurologist put me on Keppra a long time ago. I usually feel dizzy and feel like I'm going to start to seize.

I reviewed all the medication that I have taken and have been taking since 2018 and realized that my seizures started right when I started taking NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) (I started taking this medicine reviewing studies that suggested it worked well for OCD, it really did work well)

Well, I stopped taking NAC  two month ago and I have not had any seizures or feel as bad and dizzy as I felt. I need confirmation that the withdrawal of NAC has caused my seizure / epilepsy problems to go away.

I have been investigating for days and it is not very clear why NAC was giving me these seizures

Does anyone have any idea why NAC was giving me seizures?

Thanks in advance
