Acute dystonia induced by quetiapine: a case report.

Gedam SR, Ghosh SS.


Quetiapine is an atypical antipsychotic which has been shown to have lower incidence of extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS). In recent times, few case reports and case series have reported occurrence of akathisia, dystonia, and Parkinsonism with quetiapine; however, data are still sparse. To add to this literature, we report a case of 23 years old male who developed acute dystonia on quetiapine.
