Adamou, Marios and Hale, Anthony S. (2003) Erotomania induced by venlafaxine: a case study. Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica, 107 (4). pp. 314-317. ISSN 0001-690X

Objective:  To describe a never previously reported case of erotomania induced by venlafaxine and highlight the effect of antidepressants on the dopaminergic system.

Method:  A case of erotomania is described.

Result:  Erotomania occurring in two separate occasions developed after treatment with high doses of venlafaxine. The episode remitted only after lowering the dose of the venlafaxine.

Conclusion:  Erotomania may occur with agents such as antidepressants. The dopamine neurotransmission of mood can provide further evidence for the development of newer classes of antidepressants.
