IV Glutathione in epileptic patients

Is it safe to administer IV glutathione in an epileptic patient on keppra and with cerebral palsy? And…

Have you administered IV glutathione in patients with g6pd deficiency given the redox cycle in red blood cells?

Dr. Anderson:

Clinically I have seen no problem with epileptics, Keppra and GSH, same with G6PD deficiency (actually is helpful).
Just assure tolerance and as always ramp up slowly.
