tommy000 Posted September 27, 2010 Share Posted September 27, 2010 i got this off a website off google: "Neuroleptics (antipsychotics), especially the high potency agents such as haloperidol, induce a variety of involuntary movements known as extrapyramidal side effects. These consist of involuntary movements that occur due to blockade of dopamine receptors in the nigrostriatal pathway of the basal ganglia." this is getting a bit complicated. apparently the old aps block everything including the basal ganglia. thats where all the eps is coming from. so do the new aps block it less thats why there are fewer eps side effects? or dont they block it at all? plz explain.
