In brief: Only if you're Mario

People don't combust after seizures.
On the other hand, mario (of super brothers fame) does! alcohol is another matter as far as messing with seizures and antiseizure medications, so you best discuss this important matter with your physician.

In brief: No

I think you mean "convulsions" rather than combustion.
No, no, no and no! first of all, a lot of seizures are caused by alcohol withdrawal. Second, if they are caused by something else, alcohol will make them worse. Third, alcohol interacts with virtually every anti-seizure medication, causing them not to work as well. Please talk to your doctor about your drinking and consider getting help.
