    I have never heard of this. I looked up the drug and it under precautions it does say "systemic toxicity may occur rarely; including CNS stimulation followed by depression". Is this the first time the patient has taken the drops? Or do they use it chronically? Do they have a history of seizure?

    NO correlation. Either the person has a previous seizure disorder or they passed out which can sometimes appear like a seizure.
