Contact your doctor: A 15 minute seizure is unusually long. Sounds like you need to see your doctor soon (early next week) for a medical evaluation. Things like infections, alcohol, sleep deprivation, meds, drugs, etc. Are all things that may need to be considered.

Variation: Many patients with epilepsy experience a variation in their seizures. Over tired, missed medication, hormonal effects, illness, all can cause a variation in seizures. If this variation is more frequent and/or progressive, it may indication serious changes in your brain. Be sure to discuss these issues in detail with your doctor.
