Sertraline Induced Dystonia - A Case Report

Dr. Satrajit Ghosal | Dr. Ankit Halder [3]

Abstract: This case report discusses a 21-year-old male who developed dystonia following the administration of sertraline, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor SSRI. The patient experienced unilateral neck muscle stiffness, which subsided upon discontinuation of sertraline and reoccurred upon re-administration. The case highlights the importance of recognizing SSRI-induced extrapyramidal symptoms, which are less commonly known but significant for effective patient management.
