Of the tricyclics, it is amoxapine that carries with it the greatest risk of EPS. I have never heard of EPS with the others. There certainly are reports of EPS with some of the SSRIs. I would be curious to know what the mechanisms are behind this. Perhaps there is a depletion of dopamine in the striatum.
