Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome :: Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome Symptoms

The first symptom to develop is usually muscular rigidity, followed by high fever and changes in cognitive functions.

Other symptoms can vary, but may be unstable blood pressure, confusion, coma, delirium, muscle tremors, etc. Once symptoms do appear, they rapidly progress and can reach peak intensity in no more than three days. These symptoms can last as little as eight hours or as long as forty days.
