> Thank you for the detailed info re: NMS. I was starting to get very concerned based on Maxx's posts...they sounded alarmist but you never know. Your very readable, yet very knowledgable post debunking Maxx's post in detail put my mind at ease. I appreciate that your post was backed up with extensive citations of research. I am not a scientist by profession but I have done quite a bit of research in the past to get my master's and your data made sense to me.

> Thanks again for putting my mind at ease.

You're very welcome, and that was my intent, to ease people's minds. I do want to be clear, thought, that what he describes does happen, but it is rare enough to be reported in the literature as case reports, the sort of thing analogous to "Boy, you should have seen the weird case came into emergency last week....had us all baffled." It is very hard to develop something like a conceptual pattern from these sporadic events. Moreover, we still don't have a clue why they happen at all.

> PS I had fully intended to do my own research on atypical NMS in order to talk to my doctor about my concerns, but because of your post, I no longer feel I need to do that. I will however bring up that I want to ease off the Seroquel rather than go cold turkey like he seemed to suggest at our last appt.

Another point: atypical NMS is not a clearly defined entity. And what is described in the literature is not's something bad, but I guess they should come up with a name and some consistent symptoms....that will come I'm sure, over time.

Tapering off any drug, escpecially one you've been on for a while, is just plain prudent. I would insist on tapering off Seroquel. I did when I came off it.
