Thank you for your question about seizures and driving restrictions. Medical conditions that alter our level of consciousness impact our ability to drive safely. The more abrupt the change in
consciousness, the greater the likelihood of a crash. Seizures are as abrupt as you can get. So most states require a period of time (3 months or 6 months) when the driver has been seizure free before allowing them back behind the wheel. However, very often states (specifically, the Medical Affairs division of your state licensing authority) will be more flexible because of individual clinical factors. In your husband's case it appears the seizure was not due to epilepsy, but was an acute reaction to polypharmacy. I think it would be worth contacting the licensing authority to see if the 3 month restriction could be reduced. Good luck!
