Medicine, Copenhagen O, Denmark.
Concentrations of citalopram in
medicolegal samples from 92 autopsies and 27 living persons are
described. In autopsy cases in which citalopram alone was the cause of
death, concentrations ranged from 2.0 to 6.2 mg/kg whole blood. In
autopsy cases in which citalopram together with other substances was
considered to be the cause of death, the concentrations of citalopram
ranged from 0.6 to 5.2 mg/kg whole blood. In autopsy cases toxic
concentrations ranged from 0.4 to 0.9 mg/kg whole blood and therapeutic
concentrations from 0.03 to 0.6 mg/kg whole blood. In samples from
living persons the concentrations of citalopram in whole blood were 0.02
to 0.3 mg/kg.
