Witnesses reported tonic-clonic-type movements which continued for 1 to 2 minutes before spontaneously ceasing. The patient denied any prodromal symptoms including lightheadedness, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath, nausea, headache, or visual changes. His medical history was noteworthy for hyperlipidemia, depression, and tongue cancer 6 years previously. His depression had been difficult to control, and he was receiving WellbutrinXLreg-, CONCERTAreg-, and nortriptyline. The nortriptyline was started 1 month previously. The physical examination was significant for a mild, regular tachycardia and a 1-cm scalp laceration. The rest of the physical examination, including a complete neurological examination, was normal. Laboratory studies, including a complete blood count, complete metabolic panel, and cardiac enzymes, were normal. A CT scan of his head was normal. The admitting electrocardiogram is shown above.
