I have never had that experience I use Splenda everyday in my coffee and it does not cause me to have seizures. I've never drank a cup of coffee and then had a seizure head but I do use it everyday so I couldn't say wholeheartedly if it hasn't contributed to any of my seizure activity

Cas,
I never used artificial sweeteners because what it can do. I just use plain sugar or honey!

Aspartame is an artificial sweetner, it affects some medication so you could get seizures because of your meds that are not doing their job.

Aspartaam is een kunstmatige zoetstof die reageert met sommige medicijnen, waardoor deze hun werk niet goed doen en je dus een aanval kan krijgen. Als je toch gezond wil doen, drink dan veel water en dingen met natuurlijke suikers!

Lissens Anne,
I don't use any chemical sweetener in My drinks. Just plain old sugar. I don't need chemical sweetener to interact with My Meds..
