Abstract

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants are preferred to tricyclics, because, for the same efficacy, they are better tolerated. The mechanisms of action are well understood. These drugs may be used during pregnancy. We present here the case of a voluntary intoxication with SSRI in the third trimester of pregnancy.
