If it does, I would expect it to be very small. Quetiapine (Seroquel) is considered to be the safest with respect to EPS and tardive dyskinesia.

> In all the literature they say that Seroquel is less likely to cause fact it is the only antipsychotic that has shown an incident of EPS, in clinical trials, the same as that of placebo. However, I actually agree with you. I have read of many more people getting EPS from Seroquel over Olanzapine.

hey you read that too huh :) yeah less EPS than placebo, then everyone you talk to who takes the drug gets numb tongue or tremors or something, i don't know how they come up with this stuff

i disagree with teh literature thing though.. when i was reading up on it last summer almost every article i went through said zyprexa was number 1 .... don't get me wrong though, seroquel is still much lower than geodon or risperdal ...... ummmm.... personally i'm on low dose abilify and love the stuff :)
