First manic episode induced by over the counter slimming drug that contains sibutramine

Mehmet Hanifi Kokaçya, Musa Şahpolat, Faruk Kurhan.

Abstract
Sibutramine, a serotonin, noradrenalin and to a lesser extent dopamine reuptake inhibitor, is a beta phenyletylamine used in obesity treatment and has many psychiatric side effects. Although, prohibited due to cardiologic side effects, it is still being sold as “Slimming pills” via internet. It is known that antidepressants can cause manic or hypomanic shifts. Since sibutramine has an antidepressant activity it may cause manic or hypomanic shifts. We present an adolescent who had his first manic episode after using sliming pills, which contain sibutramine, and was admitted to our service for his second manic episode 6 months after his first episode.

Key words: sibutramine, mania, slimming pills
