abstract

  • In a prospective study of 20 patients with NMS, those who received dantrolene (2 patients) or bromocriptine (2 patients) or both (4 patients) tended to have a more prolonged course of illness and a greater incidence of sequelae than those treated with supportive care alone. These results do not indicate a useful role for dantrolene or bromocriptine in the treatment of NMS.
