No: But it could contribute to a stroke. Some BP meds have a rebound phenomenon with rebound high blood pressure resulting when you skip them. It's not recommended. Even in the best case, you're exposing yourself to the risks of uncontrolled htn. But to answer your question, unless you have some special condition, seizure is not generally an issue.
