I'm taking methadone and Xanax (alprazolam) to get off tabs and have epilepsy and had a seizure this morning, is that because I didn't take xanax (alprazolam)?

In brief: Maybe

First of all Methadone and Xanax (alprazolam) is not a great combination.
People rarely accidentally overdose on either Methadone or xanax (alprazolam). However the combo is much more dangerous. The seizure could just be a seizure or it could be due to rapid Xanax (alprazolam) wean.

Coming off of drugs can be difficult and potentially dangerous as i'm sure you already know. Please get help from someone qualified.
