neurological disorder most often caused by an adverse reaction to neuroleptic or antipsychotic drugs. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome Information Page: NINDS)

NINDS Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome Information Page: NINDS (Excerpt)

In most cases, the disorder develops within the first 2 weeks of treatment with the drug; however, the disorder may develop any time during the therapy period. The syndrome can also occur in people taking anti-Parkinsonism drugs known as dopaminergics if those drugs are discontinued abruptly.

About medication causes:

Another misdiagnosis possibility is that a particular medication or substance may be the real cause of the disease. Certain medications, chemicals, toxins or substances may possibly be underlying causes of Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome. Side effects of medications, or exposure to toxins, chemicals, or other substances may cause a symptom or condition. Hence, they become possible underlying causes of Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome but are often misdiagnosed or overlooked as a cause. For a general overview of this misdiagnosis issue, see Medication Underlying Cause Misdiagnosis.
