Seizure info needed for fic

Okay, in the story that I'm writing, a character drinks an alien drink. He ends up having a severe reaction to it.

So, what I need to know is: What are some symptoms of seizures? Besides, the whole typical body shaking thing, what else happens? Are there different types of seizures? How badly do they damage the brain? Can they cause memory loss? If they do cause memory loss, how long would it take for someone to recover from that? Can you blackout from them, if so, how long are you out of it? What kind of chemicals could trigger a seizure? Any kind that wouldn't trigger immediately, a slow build up, perhaps only after the blood gets pumping really fast? (Guess I'm thinking sort of like a snake bite thing here, where you feel the effects of it steadily. But must maintain a calm, slow pulse, so the venom doesn't effect you as fast.)
