Galactorrhea is defined as the spontaneous flow of a milky or colorless fluid-like discharge from the nipple. The condition occurs most often in women but can also develop in men and children. Galactorrhea is more common with antipsychotics when compared to antidepressants. Limited literature is available regarding escitalopram-induced galactorrhea on which the current case report focuses. The current study advances the earlier studies in presenting galactorrhea with normal prolactin levels. The following case report depicts the development of galactorrhea by the use of escitalopram at a low dose when compared to other studies.
