SSRI discontinuation syndrome

Updated: 2017-06-13


SSRI discontinuation syndrome refers to symptoms that may occur when a person stops taking SSRI antidepressants.


Symptoms can be flu-like and include nausea, sleeplessness, anxiety, and irritability.


It may be avoided by a slow reduction of the amount of antidepressant or by a switch to another SSRI drug.
