This chapter summarizes the use of antidepressants and antimanic medications in children and adolescents. Antimanic medications that are also antiepileptics, such as carbamazepine, valproate, and clonazepam, are discussed here, but their pharmacological details are found in Chapter 12. The discussion on the use of antidepressants will focus on their use in mood disorders (for which they were originally introduced) and on their use in anxiety disorders, attention-deficit disorders, and enuresis.1–7 Since the first edition of this guide, more data concerning the use of selective or specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) has become available, and treatment with more than one medication has become more common. This chapter will discuss the uses of SSRIs as well as combinations of medications in children and adolescents. Toxicity and treatment for toxicity will also be discussed.
