Abstract

‘Atypical’ antipsychotics (AAPs), which have been associated with serious metabolic side effects, are increasingly being used for off-label indications other than psychosis, with little guidance available in this context as to risk of side effects, or monitoring. Here we report on a case of emergent metabolic syndrome, in association with low-dose quetiapine used for insomnia in an elderly gentleman, which reversed following quetiapine discontinuation.
