Fatal poisoning by protriptyline and haloperidol following an extreme overdose

Fatal poisoning by protriptyline and haloperidol following an extreme overdose

Zeitschrift für Rechtsmedizin. Journal of Legal Medicine 97(4): 277-283

In this paper the authors report on a case of lethal suicidal toxification with protriptyline and haloperidol after oral ingestion. Gas chromatographic and radioimmunologic investigations were used for quantitative determination of protriptyline and haloperidol in blood, urine, and tissues. The highest concentrations were found in lung and liver. These concentrations are discussed with reference to the cause of death.
