Did he have the seizure after he reduced his alcohol intake, because if he did, that could have caused the seizure. Many alcohol dependents have seizures if they quit or reduce their intake. If he seems to be seizing again, take him to the ER. Most who quit alcohol get irritable, the Prozac and Xanax should be helping with that part of it. The oxycodone may be making him extra irritable as well. If he seems too sick to you, take him to the ER and remember to take all his meds with you, so they know not to give him anything that will react with them. Do tell them he has an alcohol problem and has recently cut back alot, they do need to know that.
