The postpartum period is a high-risk period for occurrence of mood disorders
(depression, mania) particularly for women with a history of bipolar disorder.
We report the case of a woman with a postpartum mania episode with psychotic
features induced by bromocriptine. This case report highlights the need to
systematically explore the personal history of pregnant women in search of mood
disorder which may proscribe use of bromocriptine.
