Nocturnal Enuresis, also known as bedwetting, is one of the underrecognized side effects from atypical antipsychotics. A comparative cohort study found that approximately one in five patients on clozapine reported nocturnal enuresis, and this was higher in comparison to risperidone, olanzapine and quetiapine.
Medical professionals should include this in their evaluation as many patients may be embarrassed to disclose this side effect.
