Özet

We present a patient who developed discontinuation symptoms following abrupt cessation of nefazodone. Three days after the first appearance of the discontinuation symptoms (i.e. 5 days after cessation of the drug), all symptoms resolved spontaneously without a need for intervention. This case report emphasizes the importance of gradual discontinuation of serotonergic drugs to avoid any consequent unpleasant discontinuation symptoms.
