Abstract

Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) may have dangerous cardiac effects in overdose. ECG is useful as both a screening tool for tricyclic antidepressant exposure and as a prognostic indicator. TCA overdose may produce various ECG changes. We report a case of Dothiepin overdose resulting in Brugada like pattern including RBBB which resolved spontaneously.
