Domperidone-induced acute dystonia and polycystic ovary syndrome

Authors


Abstract

The occurrence of acute dystonic reactions (ADRs) due to domperidone administration in two young women is reported. In both patients, a typical polycystic ovary (PCO) syndrome was found. The possibility that the relative hyperestrogenism typical of PCO syndrome acted as a facilitating factor for ADR is discussed.
