Symptoms of NMS can include muscle rigidity, fever, confusion, and other changes in mental status. NMS is considered a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment, including discontinuation of the medication causing the symptoms and supportive care to manage symptoms such as dehydration and high fever. It is important to seek immediate medical attention if symptoms of NMS occur.
