Hi, first thing you may want to do is to get your beardie to a vet and have him looked at. Seizures can be quite serious.

Also in the meantime, you may want to jump over to the bearded dragon forum and run this by some experienced keepers.
They will without a doubt ask for more information, such as your temps, lighting, substrate, foods, suppliements, so forth.
I don't think I have ever had a lizard have seizures due to a large prey item. They can however become paralized in either the back legs or fronts where ever the impaction or blockage is located.

If he's impacted in any way from eating to large of prey item, they may suggest soaking him in warmish water, a few small drops 2- 3 (small drops) of mineral oil mixed with a few drops of warmish water, sucked up into a dropper or needless syringe.

Has he had any bowel movements? They can become constipated if impacted as well.

But as I said only a vet can tell you the problem as we can not know for sure whats going on.

I sure hope your beardie can recover from what ever is causing this problem. Keep us updated, let us know!
