easy child was taking Amitriptyline for migraine prevention. She had to get off from it so she could start a medication for her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She has been on all of the SSRI's with one side effect or another. The amitriptyline did help with her migraines and decreased her anxiety but she still had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Every time we stop the amitriptyline, she has rages. She is taking Seroquel to help with this right now, but it is starting to come back. She did have these episodes even before being on the Amitriptyline but they went away after starting it. Yesterday, the psychiatrist suggested her rages might be due to partial seizures. He was very interested to hear that her cousin was just diagnosis'ed with seizures. He is going to order an EEG before doing anything else with medications. While I am impressed by this doctor, I am skeptical that this is the answer since it seems to me that the Amitriptyline (which lowers the seizure threshhold) would have made things worse instead of better. She also never rages at school. He said some kids can hold it together at school but fall apart at home even with these seizures. Does anyone who knows about seizures have any thoughts about this? This psychiatrist is a wonderful doctor. He also does her therapy. He makes her do CBT right there in his office. He spends as much time as he needs on each patient so frequently runs very late but all of our appointments have lasted at least 30 minutes over our scheduled time, so I can't complain. I also like that he is even thinking about seizures since from what I read here, some doctors won't even order these EEG's.
