Fluoxetine-Induced Recurrent Hypoglycemia


  • IQRAA International Hospital and Research Centre, Calicut, India


Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are known to affect glucose metabolism and can cause hypoglycaemia in diabetic patients. There are two reports of SSRI-induced hypoglycaemia in non diabetic elderly females. We report fluoxetine induced recurrent hypoglycaemia in a non diabetic middle aged female with obsessive compulsive disorder, which has hitherto not been reported.
