Özet

Tricyclic antidepressant overdose is known to cause cardiopulmonary and central nervous system complications. As with other cardiovascular complications, amitriptyline toxicity may cause acute myocardial infarction. This paper reports the case of a young female with acute myocardial infarction as a novel consequence of tricyclic antidepressant overdose.
