In reply to EPS from SSRI or other Antidepressants?, posted by Mr.Scott on December 2, 2004, at 23:52:38
I've treated my EPS symptoms which range from increasing restlessness, muscle tension, dystonia in my leg and back, and myoclonic jerks throughout my entire body eventually leading to muscle pain, fatigue, and soreness in two ways. Dopamine enriching drugs such as amphetamine, although Watch Out on the crash for a rebound. And also I used benztropine. The benztropine caused so many anticholinergic side effects it made Elavil look like a godsend. I'll take my god given depression before benztropine any day!
