Objective: To describe the first case of sertraline-induced diplopia.
Method: Medline and PubMed data search using the words sertraline, Zoloft, diplopia, double vision. A case summary of a patient who developed diplopia from sertraline.
Result: This case describes a 34-year-old man who developed diplopia after treatment with sertraline. The diplopia resolved after discontinuation of sertraline and redeveloped upon rechallenge.
Conclusion: Although incidences of diplopia caused by citalopram, another SSRI, have been described, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of sertraline-induced diplopia. More studies are needed to describe the full mechanism of action of sertraline-induced diplopia.
Keywords: SSRI; Zoloft; diplopia; sertraline.
