I would not bother with an EEG ( I cant see any harm in it ) I think that you should consider trying an SSRI instead of the drugs that you have been taking. You might want to consider Paxil or Luvox, I wouldn't try Prozac

Thats my thoughts

Cheers Robert

> I was just wondering if I should ask my pdoc to refer me for an EEG.
> I have had some pretty severe, numerous reactions to both Effexor and Elavil. They both send me into deep depression (when it is only mild to being with), give me extreme anxiety (when I have none to begin with), make me twitch and jolt in my sleep, make my ears ache, pop and ring, jaws click, give me nightmares, make me lose all concentration, make songs play in my head all day and all night and give me extreme insomnia.
> These symptoms slowly go away when I stop taking the meds, but the only problem is I cannot go to sleep whatsoever without a sleep med. I had this problem in the past and it was corrected with Effexor, now the Effexor and Elavil have both given me these extreme, opposite reactions to the meds. Any ideas?
> Obviously this is not a normal reaction. Would an EEG be a consideration to find out anything about what is going on?
> What is the diff. between an EEG, an Amb EEG and a video EEG and which should I ask for? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
