Abstract

Serotonin syndrome is an under-reported and under-recognised condition that occurs on administration of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors alone, or in combination with other medication known to increase levels of 5-hydroxytryptamine. This case report demonstrates signs and symptoms associated with their overdose and illustrates the importance of recognition of this syndrome to instigate appropriate treatment for the patient.
