In a way: Medications can lower the "seizure threshold." that means that if you have some tendency to possibly get a seizure but your body has been able to avoid it, the medication may let the seizure go ahead and happen. Drugs such as psychiatric medications often have this tendency. That said, the fda is not likely to approve a medication that actually caused seizures.
