Have anyone out there ever had a seizure from taking hydrocodone or oxycodone. I have been taking hydrocodone in the past for pain and I realized that I started having frequent complex partial seizures, maybe about 6 a day. I have been giving anti seizure meds and it failed to help me one bit. On my own I decided to have my doctor change my pain meds to oxycodone. Since then my seizures drastically slowed down to about 5 or so a month, although I wish they would stop completely. Every doctor that I had talked to told me that they don't think it is the pain killers, but then what else could it be? If anyone ever had seizures like this from these types of medication please get back to me. Thank you.
