|This does in fact sound like it was a seizure. Unfortunately, if she hasn't had prior seizure activity, it does also sound like a reaction to her meds. I would talk to the Vet about changing her meds to something else, or taking her off of them. Do NOT take her off the meds on your own as you could make things worse depending on how you go about it. In fact.. I would probably get a second opinion from another Vet and talk to them about it and see what they say.
In the instance that she has another seizure, try to stay calm, and give her some space unless she comes to you. Many dogs are disoriented and scared during and after a seizure, and stressing them out further(by trying to calm them, or stop movement if they're on their feet, or even petting) can make seizures last longer, or even turn into clusters. You can give a little vanilla ice cream or honey afterward to help balance out the blood sugar levels once again as well.
I would definitely go to another Vet for another opinion though, as it sounds like this Vet is taking the 'wait and see' game. Which, I mean, it can be if it has no cause, but if she had seizure activity while on meds that she hasn't been on before, that suggests a reaction to the meds, and action should be taken by the Vet to help you remove the meds and either find other meds that can help with the health problem, or do testing, etc.
