Severe amitriptyline poisoning results in cardiac and neurological toxicity and continues to be a leading cause of significant morbidity and mortality both in children and adults. We present a case of severe amitriptyline poisoning successfully treated with plasma exchange. Due to high plasma protein binding property of amitriptyline, plasma exchange therapy should be considered in cases of severe amitriptyline intoxication as a life saving therapeutic modality.
