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.
