Abstract

The authors present a case of mania associated with the prolonged ingestion of large doses of L-dopa. Prior reports relating L-dopa therapy to mania in patients with bipolar disorders are discussed. The induction of a classic manic syndrome by catecholamine augmentation is possible in a nonbipolar individual.
