Tardive dyskinesia associated with fluoxetine.

Dubovsky SL, Thomas M.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, USA.

Three cases in which patients who were taking fluoxetine for relief of depression showed patterns of abnormal movements suggestive of tardive dyskinesia are presented. In the first case, abnormal facial movements began four weeks after fluoxetine was added to doxepin and lithium and remitted after fluoxetine was discontinued. In the second case, abnormal movements of the mouth and hands were noticed four years after the patient started taking fluoxetine and continued to be present a year after withdrawal of the medication. In the third case, orofacial dyskinesia that had remitted after withdrawal of sertraline and paroxetine and reappeared with fluoxetine was still present eight months after fluoxetine was withdrawn.
