Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

We describe a patient in whom a manic episode was precipitated by use of panadeine forte, a preparation containing codeine and paracetamol.

CLINICAL PICTURE:

The patient developed a discrete manic psychotic episode.

TREATMENT:

The treatment consisted of cessation of the Panadeine forte and antipsychotic medication.

OUTCOME:

The patient made a complete recovery after 1 week.

CONCLUSIONS:

Mania can be induced by large doses of Panadeine forte, particularly if there is a biological predisposition.
