Abstract

A 65-year old patient suffering from severe psychotic depression obtained quetiapine for roughly one year. Several attempts to discontinue quetiapine by tapering the dose provoked severe withdrawal symptoms with nausea and vomitus. Pretreatment with domperidone largely prevented withdrawal so that he finally could successfully discontinue quetiapine administration.
