What drugs are associated with the development of pseudotumor cerebri? 

Pseudotumor cerebri is characterized by headache, papilledema, diplopia, and impaired vision due to raised intracranial pressure possibly due to CSF malabsorption.

Drugs associated with its development include oral contraceptives, estrogens, tetracyclines, nalidixic acid, nitrofurantoin, ketamine, nitrous oxide, vitamin A, and retinoids such as isotretinoin and acitretin, minocycline, danazol, ampicillin, amiodarone, etretinate, and thyroxine.

Abrupt withdrawal of corticosteroids has been associated with its development in children.
