grand mal seizure and oxycodone
I have been on rather high doses of oxycodone for 6 years to treat pain from ms, arthritis, herniated disc and past car accidents (possibly). I recently had a grand mal seizure. Was in hospital for 4 days but they found no reason for seizure. Can it be from the oxycodone?
I have been taking oxycodone for about six years have had seizures before that the injuries form the seizures led to my having to take the oxy it does not usually cause them if they can't fine a reason for the seizure that is a good thing it is called idiopathic

Oxycodon will not cause seizures on its own when decreasing dosage or even when in full blown withrawel. You will feel like complete shit but unless there is an underlying health issue opiates/opioids are usually fairly safe to come off of. The addictive a substances that have dangerious withdrawels and can cause seizures if not properly tapered off are benzos (i.e. Xanax) and alchohol.

I had a seizure a few years ago after taking less of my xanax than usual for a couple days in a row. At first they couldn't find a cause for the episode, but ultimately chalked it up a change in the amount of xanax in my system. After years on high daily doses of xanax, my body took that as the norm and carried out its other funct
