Sir: We report a case of mandibular dystonia that developed
after sertraline, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI), was added
to a chronic regimen of metoclopramide.

Case report. Ms. A, a 23-year-old white woman with no
prior history of depression, presented to our inpatient crisis unit

15 mg q.i.d.
