In this letter to the editor, the author reports on another case of a patient who experienced some adverse effects while taking fluoxetine. In this case, the patient did not become suicidal but he did experience, & act on, an impulse to cut himself. This impulse disappeared when the dosage of fluoxetine was decreased. (3 refs.)
