Cabergoline Reactions 1680, p75 - 2 Dec 2017 Mania with psychotic features: case report A 22-year-old woman developed mania with psychotic features during treatment with cabergoline [Dostinex; route and dosage not stated]. The woman, who was diagnosed with infertility due to hyperprolactinaemia, presented to the psychiatric unit after four days of the first dose of cabergoline. Her family reported the changes in her behaviour, insomnia, self-talking, euphoria and false claims. A psychiatric evaluation revealed that she appeared euphoric and loudly-laughing with psychomotor hyperactivity, grandiose behaviour, flight of ideas and delusions of persecutions. Her mood was labile with impaired abstract, judgement and pressured speech. The young mania rating scale score was found to be 40. A diagnosis of mania with psychotic features was made. The woman’s cabergoline treatment was discontinued. She was successfully managed with aripiprazole and carbamazepine. Three weeks later, her manic symptoms improved with a resolution of her psychiatric symptoms.
