  • Abstract  

    There have been a lot of documented cases of antipsychotic drug induced galactorrhea or non-puerperal lactation and isolated case reports of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor induced galactorrhea. Here we are reporting a case of amitriptyline, a tricyclic antidepressant induced galactorrhea and complete resolution when the drug was withdrawn. There are other literature documenting antidepressant induced galactorrhea. This literature here is to support and understand the current trends and mechanism as it is different from what we encounter with antipsychotic.
