It would depend if your friend is under a Drs. care and seizure free. As far as PTSD it would depend what your friends triggers are.

Think about it.
Bicycles require constant rider input to remain upright.
Epileptic fits can render a person unconscious.
Do you really think it's a good idea to be the one controlling a vehicle that needs constant corrective input if you muight pass out at any moment?
Epilepsy comes in many degrees and shapes. Benign cases can be well enough controlled by medication to make bicycle riding an acceptable activity. Some people can feel an attack coming on well enough beforehand to put themselves in a safe place before it strikes.
I don't know how badly affected your friend is. If your friend is OK to drive, he should be OK to ride.

Do I look like a doctor? 🤔 Nope. Just the Epilepsy alone poses a great risk according to this web link. https://www.medpagetoday.com/neurology/seizures/71...
My suggestion is to 1) Get into therapy for the PTSD. 2) See a doctor that specializes in Epilepsy. 3) Smoke more weed. Tommy Chong approved this message. 👍

None of the regular contributors here are medical doctors. Have your friend consult with their family doctor as to what their physical limitations are.Source(s): Motorized bicycle owner and builder.
