Late-onset normoprolactinemic galactorrhea associated with fluoxetine use: a case report

Aslihan Polat, Hatice Turan, Ugur Cakir.

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.

Key words: fluoxetine, galactorrhea, prolactin, SSRI, normoprolactinemia
