Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS) is a severe neurological disorder caused by the adverse effects of antipsychotic and neuroleptic drugs, such as clozapine, Abilify, Sordinol, Risperdal, Clorazil, Seroquel, and Haldol.

The symptoms of Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome include:

  • Elevated Creatine Phosphokinase
  • Delirium
  • Cognitive Changes
  • Fever
  • Rigidity
  • Diaphoresis
  • Confusion
  • Altered State of Mind
  • Tremor
  • Unstable Vitals
  • Encephalopathy
  • Cramps

Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome causes an increase in white blood cell count and creatine phosphokinase. Symptoms are often misinterpreted by doctors and this causes an incorrect approach to treatment. If you have been misdiagnosed by a medical professional, contact one of our medical misdiagnosis attorneys.

The mere presence of certain drugs does not alone cause Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome. Instead, the risk of developing NMS is increased with specific kinds of drug therapy. A rapid increase in dose or long-acting forms of neuroletpics can increase the chances of developing NMS. Furthermore, men under the age of 40 have the greatest probability of developing NMS.

A Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome law firm can help you extract a settlement from either pharmaceutical companies or the medical professionals who wrongfully prescribed you the drugs.
