Default Clarinex

Saturday night (July 30) I gave my daughter a little more clarinex than I usually do. Doctor said if 1/2 tsp. wasn't getting the job done, to go ahead and give 1 1/2 tsp. 20 minutes or so later my daughter was having what looked to be a siezure. She could still talk to us, and breath, but could not control her bodily movements. After taking her to E.R. and running the usual blood tests the doctor conceded that he had never seen anything like this before. We all assumed we were dealing with a Claritin overdose. Several hours later the seizure activity went away and my daughter and I came home. She had a good sleep and a good day and then in the afternoon the seizure like activity began again. EEG revealed true seizure activity, but no one believes this has anything to do with the Clarinex. I still believe Clarinex is responsable for this. My daughter is six years old and has never had any symptoms similar to these before. Has anyone heard of seizure activity in children after a dose of Clarinex?
