In brief: Only if

You have a seizure while driving while in the U.
S. Unmediated or poorly control seizure patients are not allowed to drive here. Not sure about bc. I would have to think in thiscase the laws are similar. However by not taking the meds and having continued seizures you run the risk of brain damage.
