Detailed psychiatric examination of the patient revealed that the cause of the manifestations that led him to take amphetamines were chronic subdepressive conditions of endogenous character. The author decided to treat chronic subdepression conditions of endogenous origin in the patient with sertraline since it is a very safe drug. The author assumed here the possibility of interactions between sertraline and amphetamine, should the patient, in spite of his numerous promises, break abstinence and take amphetamine. Sertraline proved very effective in the patient. Subdepressive states regressed completely and the patient has not been taking amphetamine at all for 6 months.
