Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: Somnambulism is classified as a parasomnia and has been reported with the use of classical antidepressants. However, to our knowledge, there have been no reports of somnambulism associated with the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. We herein report a case of somnambulism induced by paroxetine.
