Abstract

Endocrine side effects of serotonergic antidepressants (SSRIs) are seldom mentioned and although its mechanism is unknown, the development of galactorrhea may be very disturbing. Fluoxetine-induced galactorrhea has been relatively rarely reported. We present a case of a 35-year-old woman who developed late onset normoprolactinemic galactorrhea associated with fluoxetine use.
