PURAS RICO, Pablo  and  GOMEZ RODRIGUEZ, Esther. Recurrent hyponatremia due to SSRI. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.4, pp.717-723. ISSN 2340-2733.

The aim of this paper is to present an 88 year old man who has suffered in the last three years from three episodes of hyponatremia due to SIADH in relation to use of serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), all of three which have required hospitalization. In two of these episodes the patient was receiving concomitant therapy with thiazide diuretics, being the antidepressant drug sertraline the one involved, and in one of the three episodes the patient was treated with citalopram without there being any concomitant diuretic therapy. We review the risk factors for this complication, the literature and provide recommendations for control.

Keywords : Serotonin uptake inhibitors; Sertraline; Citalopram; Hyponatremia; Inappropiate ADH Syndrome.
