Quetiapine-induced hyperventilation and dyspnea


Mutschler, J; Obermann, C; Grosshans, M (2010). Quetiapine-induced hyperventilation and dyspnea. Clinical Neuropharmacology, 33(4):214.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Quetiapine is an atypical antipsychotic with favorable properties in the treatment of bipolar disorder, but it has recently been associated with respiratory dysfunction.

METHODS: In this case report, we describe a patient who developed quetiapine-induced hyperventilation and dyspnea after being treated with quetiapine.

RESULTS: To our knowledge, this is the first case presented with quetiapine-induced hyperventilation in a patient with bipolar disorder.

CONCLUSIONS: We recommend a quick reduction of the quetiapine dosage and a change to an alternative antipsychotic for patients treated with quetiapine, who report such respiratory symptoms without a somatic cause for the symptoms.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
