Article Abstract

Sir: Nefazodone, a newer antidepressant with a dual action on the serotonin system, is effective in major depression, comorbid anxiety and depression, and possibly other conditions such as panic disorder.

The present case is the first reported that demonstrates another possible indication of nefazodone: mood disorder associated with a general medical condition, in this case, seizure.
