The use of SSRl (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) in kleptomania's treatment: case reports Kleptomania is characterized by a recurrent failure to resist the impulse to steal objects not necessary for personal use or their monetary value. Although kleptomania has been identified for decades, very little is known about the reason, prevalence, and treatment of this disorder. Current knowledge about kleptomania is generally derived from case reports and theoretical studies on etiology. With regard to comorbidity, kleptomania is related to the obsessive compulsive disorder spectrum and to the broader spectrum of affective disorders. Accordingly, a psychopharmacological intervention with antidepressant drugs or mood stabilizers may be possible, even though there have been known results from controlled therapy studies to date. Nevertheless, the successful administration of such medication has been reported in several cases. Assuming a disturbed central serotonin reuptake, the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) seems to be indicated. Consequently, in our study three outpatitents who have diagnosed kleptomania by taking SSRI treatment is presented.
