Phenothiazine-associated supraventricular tachycardia

The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry
R DurstD Admon


Psychotropic medications, mainly phenothiazines, are known to be associated with cardiac insult. The case report presented here describes nearly fatal arrhythmia (sustained supraventricular tachycardia) consequent to phenothiazine treatment. The authors aim to alert psychiatrists to the possible adverse, and even fatal, effects of phenothiazines.
