Özet

Background: Antidepressants are known to induce manic switch in patients with depression. Treatment-induced mania is not considered as bipolar disorder in DSM IV. The aim of this study was to assess whether clinical characteristics of patients with unipolar depression with a history of treatment-induced mania were similar to those of patients with bipolar disorder.
