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.

All these people are poping pills now, especially bezo's which help relax you; and when you suddenly stop or drop in dose you are at risk for seizures. All these celebs take them to calm down, and these pills are everywhere, its obvious whats going on.

As a recently diagnosed epileptic in 2012, I'm quite sympathetic to him and Kelly. Had my most recent seizure 3 weeks ago despite going free for 11 mths (got stomach flu and missed a day of meds and collapsed at work). It's incredibly frustrating not being able to control it 100% and up to 20% of people with epilepsy never gain good control, even with multiple drugs. Don't think anyone should be judged for something where there is little medical knowledge and where there is no 100% cure.

Maybe some good could come of this...he could start to use his fame for epilepsy awareness....instead of being annoying!!

Having seizures means he absolutely should NOT be driving! He's rich enough to afford a driver.

Probably not taking his meds, or dosage needs adjustment. I had seizures until 30 years ago and when first diagnosed can be hard to find the right combo of meds.
