Serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs) are occasionally associated with sensory symptoms, which are one of the less recognized adverse effects. A PUBMED search supplemented with manual search was made to review the relevant literature. Anesthesia, paresthesia, and mastalgia have been reported to occur with this group of medications. The possible pathophysiology and management strategies are discussed.
