Seizure During Combination of Trimipramine and Bupropion

Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

I report a patient who was successfully treated with the combination of bupropion and trimipramine, but experienced an unexpected and substantial increase in her plasma level of trimipramine associated with a witnessed generalized seizure.
