The case describes an 80-year-old woman found unconscious by her husband who then witnessed her having 6 generalized seizures, each lasting 30 seconds over the next few hours. She had no previous history of epilepsy, but had fallen several times because of poor mobility from osteoarthritis. Amitriptyline overdosage was suspected, but unlikely. In the light of the further drug history, clinical course, and EEG changes, the diagnosis of meprobamate withdrawal was made.
