Selective serotonin reuptake
inhibitor discontinuation symptoms.
Woodbridge Hospital, Singapore.
reviews the literature on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor
discontinuation symptoms. These symptoms have been well described in
numerous anecdotal case reports and reports of small series of cases in
the Caucasian population. There are no reports in the literature of it
occurring in Asian patients. A study involving 65 patients on this type
of antidepressant revealed that Asian patients do experience these
withdrawal symptoms as well. Seven patients (3 on fluoxetine, 4 on
fluvoxamine) reported symptoms similar to those reported by Caucasian
patients in the literature. Three of the cases are reported in detail to
highlight the clinical presentation in such cases.
