Bupropion overdose in an adolescent.

Ayers S, Tobias JD.

Department of Child Health, The University of Missouri, Columbia 65212, USA.

Bupropion is a relatively new monocyclic antidepressant whose mechanism of action remains unknown. In addition to its use as an antidepressant, it has also been suggested to be effective in children with attention deficit hyperactive disorder and more recently as an aid in the cessation of cigarette smoking. The latter indication has resulted in an increase in its use and therefore an increased availability in households. To date, reports of overdoses in pediatric patients are limited. We report a 14-year-old boy who ingested 1.5 to 3 g of bupropion in a suicide attempt. Previous reports of bupropion ingestions and its management are discussed.
