Do I need to report neuroleptic malignant syndrome as a long-term health condition, or does it go away after being treated?
Yes, let doctor know. Even though a previous occurrence of nms has resolved, it may recur, especially if the causative agent, or one similar to it, is administered again. Let doctor know, so that a similar medication can be safely avoided.
Yes, definitely! If you have ever had nms, any new physician you see should be made aware. If a psychiatric medication caused it, then trying a new medication for the same problem might cause it to occur again so any new med should be started slowly and carefully. It is also an issue with anesthesia; we would avoid a drug called succinylcholine in anyone with a history of nms. Get a medicalert bracelet.
