GLA supplements should not be used if you have a seizure disorder because there have been reports of these supplements inducing seizures. Individuals taking a class of medications called phenothiazines (such as chlorpromazine, fluphenazine, perphenazine, promazine, and thioridazine) to treat schizophrenia should not take EPO because it may interact with these medications and increase the risk of seizures.
