Lil Wayne

HOSPITALIZED AGAIN

For Seizures ... Sources Say

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne was hospitalized this week in L.A. following what appeared to be multiple seizures ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the rapper tell us, Wayne suffered the seizures Tuesday night after shooting a music video in L.A. and was subsequently taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital. Weezy was released several hours later, early Wednesday morning. We're told he's doing much better now.

It's not the rapper's first encounter with seizures either -- TMZ broke the story ... Wayne suffered two seizures on board separate airplanes last October.

Lil Wayne later acknowledged he'd been prescribed seizure medication by his doc.

Weezy's rep declined to comment.

Perhaps Weezy has epilepsy? It's sad that everyone is assuming his seizures are triggered by drug abuse or his grill!! If you have epilepsy and take a prescription regularly, you can build a tolerance to it, and become immune to it! Prayers for him! I know how hard it can be <3

Too many hard drugs, sorry gotta say it. Lotta **** that gets cut in that just is not good for you. Like playing russian roulette... can have long term consequences even if he stopped doing it.

Seizure activity in people who have been enjoying themselves with 'drugs' (I include alcohol) is a very common sequelae to the toxic damage to the brain and blood vessels. These warnings are not on the packet handed out by drug dealers. Indeed it is not on a bottle of booze either - the reason given by the booze people (as Harvey can check legally) was an argument that basically "Everybody knows". I applaud TMZ for reporting this decline, but I am not sure an argumentum ad misericordiam will win the debate. I always tell folks indulging what may happen to them, but never tell them not to. It is their decision, I have no responsibility for their actions. I do think they should be armed with the facts. For example, you can often sicken a user of prescription capsules like the methoxyphenyl cyclohexanol drug, Tramadol. Suggest they open the capsule under the tongue for a 'real' high. Stopped quite a few in my experience. Toodle pip.
