Nov 29, 2020

In this episode, we discuss the diagnosis and management of extrapyramidal symptoms.

Here are some questions Dr. Pontone addresses:

  • Are there any biomarkers or neuroimaging studies that help us differentiate drug-induced EPS from Parkinson’s disease?
  • What can you do after you identify extrapyramidal symptoms? What should be your first step?
  • Is it okay to use anticholinergic agents prophylactically?
  • What is the prognosis for extrapyramidal symptoms?
  • How long does it typically take for extrapyramidal symptoms to remit?
