Abstract

Reactions 1680, p306 - 2 Dec 2017 Diminished smell and taste: case report A 52-year-old woman developed diminished smell and taste while receiving sertraline. The woman, who had a history of depression, started receiving sertraline 50 mg/day [route not stated]. Two weeks later, her taste dropped from 80% to 20%, with chocolate taste dropping from 60% of normal to 10% of normal, eggroll and fried rice from 100% of normal taste to 50 and 0% respectively. Her taste of coffee dropped from 75% to 50% and blue raspberry sucker from 150% to 75%. Prior to sertraline administration, she had five olfactory windows a day, but post- sertraline, she had zero. The quick smell identification test and alcohol sniff test revealed anosmia. Also, the retronasal smell index showed abnormal results. She previously had received citalopram and showed loss in smell and taste. Sertraline was discontinued and the woman’s taste and smell partially returned.
