    • "Escitalopram induced mania has been reported in an adult with unipolar depressive disorder (Prapotnik et al. 2004). Also Pravin et al. (2004) described an adolescent with severe major depression and a family history of depression who developed mania with concomitant use of citalopram and escitalopram. But a recent study that examined the efficiency and safety of escitalopram (10–20 mg/day) in children and adolescents with depression revealed one patient with manic reaction treated with placebo but none with escitalopram (Wagner et al. 2006).

    ABSTRACT: There has been much recent attention on the adverse effects of serotonin reuptake inhibitors on children and adolescents. One well-known adverse effect of antidepressants in adults is manic induction. Our group recently used an administrative database to study the effects of age on antidepressant-induced manic conversion and found that peri-pubertal children may be most vulnerable to manic induction. This review will address the following questions: (1) What is known about antidepressant-induced mania and rapid cycling in children and adolescents? (2) Could antidepressant exposure in children and adolescents lead to long-term mood destabilization?; and finally, (3) What research and clinical recommendations can be made based on what is known thus far?
