SummaryMania can occur by chance association during drug treatment, particularly in patients predisposed to mood disorder. Single case reports are unreliable, and evidence must be sought from large series of treated patients, particularly those with a matched control group. Drugs with a definite propensity to cause manic symptoms include levodopa, corticosteroids and anabolic-androgenic steroids. Antidepressants of the tricyclic and monoamine oxidase inhibitor classes can induce mania in… Expand
Donepezil-associated manic episode with psychotic features: a case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
Donepezil-associated mania should be suspected after donepezil initiation/dose up-titration when correlated to new onset of mania, and should be used more cautiously in patients with current or previous mood episodes or in those who are otherwise at high risk for manic episodes. Expand
Drug abuse and bipolar disorder: comorbidity or misdiagnosis?
TLDR
The pharmacotherapy of patients with bipolar disorder and drug abuse is examined, including evidence on the use of mood stabilizers, neuroleptics and the newer atypical antipsychotics in this population. Expand
Mania related to mesterolone in a previously mentally healthy person.
TLDR
The development of a manic episode subsequent to oral intake of mesterolone in a previously mentally healthy person with major depressive disorder is reported. Expand
Bipolar disorder and mechanisms of action of mood stabilizers
TLDR
Observations suggest that the brain AA cascade is a common target of mood stabilizers, and that bipolar symptoms, particularly mania, are associated with an upregulated cascade and excess AA signaling via D(2)-like and NMDA receptors. Expand
Contribution of methotrexate in precipitation of manic episode in bipolar affective disorder explored: a case report
TLDR
A case of bipolar affective disorder who had two episodes of mania likely precipitated by methotrexate, which were reversed by the withdrawal of the offending drug (methotrexate) is presented. Expand
Psychiatric side effects induced by chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine: a systematic review of case reports and population studies
TLDR
It is concluded that CQ and HCQ have the potential to induce psychiatric side effects and calls for further investigation of psychiatric symptoms induced by these drugs in the short and long term. Expand
Donepezil-induced mania.

  • Medicine
  • The Consultant pharmacist : the journal of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists
  • 2014
TLDR
The titration of donepezil was associated with the onset of mania in an elderly patient and Clinicians should be aware of this potential side effect in all patients treated withdonepezil. Expand
Antidepressant-associated mania: a study of anxiety disorders patients
TLDR
Antidepressant-associated mania appears to be related to risk factors such as personality disorder, even in non-mood disorder patients, tentatively suggesting that it is not simply an adverse event but rather a reflection of an underlying psychopathology. Expand
Prasterone (DHEA) and Mania
  • C. E. Dean
  • Medicine
  • The Annals of pharmacotherapy
  • 2000
TLDR
Clinicians and investigators are warned of the potential for severe mania in conjunction with the use of prasterone (DHEA; dehydroepiandrosterone), as endogenous DHEA concentrations peak at age 20–30 years. Expand
Possible dihydroepiandrosterone-induced mania
TLDR
A case of mania in an older man acutely admitted to the authors' psychiatric facility with no previous personal or family history of bipolar disorder that appeared to be related to recent DHEA use is reported. Expand

Drug-Induced Mania - Causative Agents,Clinical Characteristics and Management
TLDR
Steroids, levodopa and other dopaminergic agents, iproniazid, sympathomimetic amines, triazolobenzodiazepines and hallucinogens were the agents that most commonly induced manic syndromes. Expand
Steroid-induced psychiatric syndromes. A report of 14 cases and a review of the literature.
TLDR
It is indicated that severe psychiatric reactions occur in approximately 5% of steroid-treated patients, and that a large proportion of these patients have affective and/or psychotic symptoms, although tricyclic antidepressants do not appear to be useful therapeutic agents. Expand
Secondary mania: manic syndromes associated with antecedent physical illness or drugs.
TLDR
The concept of secondary mania casts doubt on any unitary or single-agent hypothesis of the etiology of mania and supports the notion of a continuum of psychopathologic syndromes. Expand
Presentation of the Steroid Psychoses
TLDR
Patients receiving daily doses of 40 mg of prednisone or its equivalent, are at greater risk for developing steroid psychosis, and tricyclic antidepressants produced an exacerbation or worsening of the clinical state in all patients to whom they were administered. Expand
Bupropion in the treatment of bipolar disorders: the same old story?
TLDR
It is suggested that buPropion may pose the same risks as other antidepressants in precipitating manic episodes in depressed bipolar patients and caution should be exercised when using bupropion in the treatment of bipolar disorders. Expand
Can antidepressants cause mania and worsen the course of affective illness?
TLDR
There appear to be no placebo-controlled studies of switches into mania in bipolar patients during antidepressant treatment, and the available evidence suggests that some bipolar patients become manic, and a few experience rapid cycling, when they are treated with antidepressants. Expand
Appearance of mania in drug-resistant bipolar depressed patients after treatment with L-triiodothyronine.
TLDR
It is concluded that T3 did not prevent the switch to mania in the bipolar depressed patients reported here and it is speculated that thyroid hormone-catecholamine receptor interaction might underlie these T3-associated clinical manifestations. Expand
Side effects of corticosteroid therapy. Psychiatric aspects.
TLDR
While dosage may be correlated to the risk of developing mental disturbances, neither dosage nor duration of treatment seems to affect the time of onset, duration, severity, or type of mental disturbances. Expand
Lithium prophylaxis of corticotropin-induced psychosis.
TLDR
In none of the patients treated with lithium did a psychotic reaction occur, although in a comparable group of 44 patients previously treated identically with corticotropin but without lithium, six (14%) became psychotic. Expand
Selegiline and manic behavior in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The author shares his experience with two patients in support of the occurrence of manic episodes as an adverse response to selegiline treatment, and he read with interest the letter by Boyson regarding psychiatric effects of seLegiline. Expand
