I dont know what the deal is but..its pretty scary. Apparently, lithium alone has a good bit of neurotoxicity and kind of functions as something of an anti-psychotic. I read somewhere that Lithium can reduce the formation of dopamine; it seems like this, coupled with a strong D2 blockade, could be part of the least, it seems like that could explain why lithium+APs ups the NMS risk considerably (especially for young men, which sucks since they're the high-risk NMS group anyway). At any rate...even if it didnt cause brain damage, the combo seems so bad to me. I mean, wouldn't that flatten somebody out A LOT? It seems like drug-induced dysphoria/depression would be a big problem, along with cognitive impairment and over-sedation.
