Abstract There is limited literature addressing the safety of administering electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) to patients concomitantly receiving bupropion monotherapy or in combination with other drugs that may alter the seizure threshold. We describe a prolonged seizure occurring during the first treatment of a course of ECT in an adult patient receiving long-term bupropion therapy, lithium, and venlafaxine.
