Escitalopram induced euprolactinemic galactorrhoea

Sonali Shinde Tesia, Pakha Tesia, Mahesh R. Gowda, Preeti S.


Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are widely prescribed antidepressants. Among them escitalopram is being widely prescribed because of its minimal adverse effects. Here we report a case of euprolactinemic galactorrhoea due to use of escitalopram 20 mg/day. Galactorrhoea itself may add to coexisting anxiety and depression. Hence it becomes imperative that physicians are aware that escitalopram can cause galactorrhoea.

Key words: escitalopram, galactorrhoea
