I want to sue the company that makes the prescription drug that has given me seizures since 1981, the year during which, after being prescribed and after consuming the drug for the first time, I first went unconscious while seated to dine in a restaurant. In 1981, the drug, yellow in color and oval in shape, was prescribed by a family physician to me, who, at the time of the drug prescription and consumption, was a seventeen-year-old minor complaining about feeling bad and dealing with motion sickness while driving, riding in a car, and riding on amusement park rides. The above-described antidepressant drug prescribed to me in 1981 was called one of the following five names: amitriptylin hydrochloride, Amitril, Elavil, imipramine, or Tofranil. Which drug was it?
Which is yellow and oval, Elavil or Tofranil?

- elavil, tofranil, depression, seizures, neurotic depression, post traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, motion sickness, pain, panic disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), anxiety and stress
Added 26 May 2010:
The doctor who prescribed the drug was Dr. Daniel Dempsey, Fort Thomas, Kentucky. The amusement park to which I rode was Kings Island, Mason, Ohio. The amusement park ride, which I boarded immediately after consuming one dose of the pill form of the above-described drug, was Kings Island's The Bat. The restaurant in which I got my first seizure after consuming the above-described drug was Kings Table, Cincinnati, Ohio. The date during which I consumed the above-described drug was in the summer of 1981. Physicians prescribed psychiatric prescription medicine to me beginning in 1981 and continuing to the end of 2005. My first car accident attributed to motion sickness and drug-induced seizures occurred in 1982 during my driving of a light-blue Gremlin on I-75 in the right-hand lane heading south from Ohio on the bridge between Ohio and Kentucky. In the 1982 I-75 light-blue Gremlin accident, I braked suddenly and swerved abruptly and sharply into the left-hand lane in order to avoid colliding with a truck that had stopped in the right-hand lane of I-75. The Gremlin, while abruptly about-facing to end up facing north, flipped over, remaining overturned. After the accident, at the time in which I had already been driven to and had already walked out of the University Hospital emergency room, I, while seated in a patient waiting area inside the same University Hospital, spoke to a police officer seated in front of me, who, after asking me how fast I had been going, told me that "it would not stack up in a court of law." I wore prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses from 1973 to 2002 for "passive treatment" for the "binocular vision disorder" called "convergence insufficency," which, according to The Bakersfield Californian, Friday, May 14, 2010, Advertising Supplement, page 12, can cause "problems associated with motion sickness." These days, I do not drive, wear any eyeglasses or contact lenses, or take any psychiatric medicine. Do you think that I could win a law suit against the company that makes the antidepressant drug prescribed to me in 1981 on the grounds that the above-described drug gave me seizures?
"Oxcarbazepine is also sometimes used to treat bipolar disorder (manic-depressive disorder; a disease that causes episodes of depression, episodes of frenzied abnormal excitement, and other abnormal moods). Talk to your doctor about the possible risks of using this medication for your condition."

I hope this helps
spontanee, I am pretty sure is ismetoo gave you excellent advice on the medication. I need to ask you why you would wait almost two decades before deciding that this was not the dr. nor the medication for you? It has been noted also that the constant pushing and jarring of some carnivals rides can actually bring on a seizure. that would be one of the reasons why all the signs on the rides say "you are at your own risk after getting on this ride" Before you try to even think about suing this doctor you have to have all your ducks in a row ( no carnival joke intended) It just seems to me that it would be terribly hard for you to find a lawyer who is willing to take on the case as you have stated it. Why are you still with the same doctor and on the same meds when you feel they have been causing mishaps for the last 15 years or so? I am not doubting the episodes, but the responsibility may lie elsewhere. Good Luck Fall Queen
