This disorder with neurological and dermatological, as well as psychiatric manifestations was more common before the manufacture of "bromide" patent medications such as Miles Nervine and Bromo Seltzer was discontinued. The disorder results from excessive, usually chronic, consumption of bromide substances. Psychiatric symptoms can include confusion, psychosis, cognitive impairment, slowing of movement, affective lability and depressed mood. Bromism could be classified as Intoxication or other Substance Induced Disorder.
