From this study (12 months ago):
Most of my symptoms increase when I do any activity that makes me sweat or hot. It takes very little to do so. Symptoms and severity vary all day. This all happened when I went off Seroquel for 5 days and was put back onto 300mg. Ever since then my health has gone down hill. Could I have NMS? The symptoms severity decreased within a week or 2 after starting back on the Seroquel
