|Title:||Movement Disorders Associated With The Use Of Ssri [distúrbios Do Movimento Associados Ao Uso De Antidepressivos - Isrs]|
|Author:||De Dantas C.R.|
|Abstract:||The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) have been largely used in clinical and psychiatric pratice. Despite of their relative lack of significant adverse effects, SSRIs may precipitate movement disorders. We report a case of a 48 years, female patient who had developed involuntary movements after taking fluoxetine 20 mg/day for 2 months. Based on a literature review, general features of SSRI-induced movement disorders are presented, such as: variable time of onset, higher vulnerability of elderly patients and clinical improvement after discontinuing the drug.|
