Most reported cases of M/A to date have occurred among patients with psychiatric illness because anticholinergic medications, including trihexyphenidyl, benztropine, biperiden, procyclidine, and orphenadrine, were commonly prescribed for the management of first-generation and high dopamine D2-affinity antipsychotic-induced extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS).
These include anticholinergics (trihexyphenidyl, benztropine), GABAergic drugs (clonazepam, baclofen), antidopaminergics (tetrabenazine) and mexiteline.
