Already diagnosed with epilepsy and migraine. Due to inflammation of occipital vessel. Why would mood modifiers, taken for grief, cause seizures?

In brief: Mood Rx & sz

Wellbutrin (bupropion) is a medicine that may cause seizures.
It is not clear why this occurs, similar medicines are not so apt to have this side effect. It is likely to depend on how medicines such as Wellbutrin (bupropion) affect neural signalling within the brain.

In brief: Drug mechanism

All meds can have side effects.
If your taking meds for grief, you are probably taking something to give you energy. A side effect of anything that helps give you energy can be nerves that are " too energized". Try talking to prescribing doc about other options.
