Abstract This study reports the effect of paroxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, on seizure length during electroconvulsive therapy. Seven inpatients taking paroxetine were compared with 7 controls taking tricyclic antidepressants. The mean seizure length of the paroxetine group was approximately twice that of the control group.
