Lil Wayne

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.

Seems mighty strange so many celebrities are suddenly having seizures. There can't be that many with frank epilepsy. I am suspicious it's due to drugs of some sort.

Probably a mixture of prescription meds and whatever other non prescription stuff he chooses to poison his body with. Maybe he was on Xanax or Klomopin and stopped taking them abruptly. I know from professional experience. That seizures happen when you quit some drugs cold turkey. This guy smokes weed like its no ones business and glorifies codeine syrup. I'm pretty sure there are other things in the mix. I'm sorry but you don't just get seizures if you're on seizure meds. He needs to stop this BS and get help or he's going to die.

Drinking all of that "Sizzurp" is coming back to haunt him. Leave the Molly and Cough Syrup alone. Stick to some good natural weed!
