Clinicians may overlook distress by only judging the severity of SE objectively in the treatment with atypical antipsychotics, leading to negative subjective well-being and a high rate of nonadherence to treatment. Therefore, it is recommended to discuss the severity of, and distress with, SE independently with patients. Future studies should focus on distress related to neurological SE, sedation, and weight gain.
