Cıtalopram Related Euprolactınaemıc Galactorrhoea: A Case Report



Dopamine has an inhibitor effect on prolactin and inhibition of dopamine increases the serum prolactin level. Several publications (1, 2) identified the serotonergic drugs as one cause of hyperprolactinaemia; Selective Serotonin Receptor Inhibitor (SSRIs) were sometimes considered one of the most frequent iatrogenic causes of hyperprolactinaemia (3). All SSRIs were identified as a cause of hyperprolactinaemia: paroxetine (3), fluoxetine (4), fluvoxamine (5), citalopram
(6) and sertraline (3).
