Amitriptyline Convulsion Causes and Reviews


Seizures are symptoms of a brain problem. They happen because of sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain. When people think of seizures, they often think of Convulsions in which a person's body shakes rapidly and uncontrollably. Not all seizures cause Convulsions. There are many types of seizures and some have mild symptoms. Seizures fall into two main groups. Focal seizures, also called partial seizures, happen in just one part of the brain. Generalized seizures are a result of abnormal activity on both sides of the brain.

Most seizures last from 30 seconds to 2 minutes and do not cause lasting harm. However, it is a medical emergency if seizures last longer than 5 minutes or if a person has many seizures and does not wake up between them. Seizures can have many causes, including medicines, high fevers, head injuries and certain diseases. People who have recurring seizures due to a brain disorder have epilepsy.

Amitriptyline Convulsion Reviews

Fri, 09 Sep 2011

can Amitriptyline can cause thrombocytopenia ?

Wed, 16 Nov 2011

After having been on elavil for 9 years, mostly at 100mg/night, I spent the last 6 months weaning off. Shortly after stopping Amitriptyline I now have high blood pressure. Before stopping, and for years before starting, my usual pressure was 115/65, now have 150/68. Can this be a withdrawal symptom or has the drug been masking a heart problem all this time or did it cause damage that did not show up before stopping the drug?
