When trying to differentiate between the two conditions think “FAST” with Serotonin Syndrome and “SLOW” with Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome.


Serotonin Syndrome (THINK FAST)
 - FAST onset

 - FAST movements (agitation, akathisia, HYPERreflexia)

 - FAST resolution

Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (THINK SLOW)

 - SLOW onset

 - SLOW movements and HYPOreflexia

 - SLOW resolution
