Abstract

Amoxapine is a second-generation antidepressant possessing significant dopamine-blocking activity and extra-pyramidal side effects. The occurrence of neuroleptic malignant syndrome is described in a patient treated with amoxapine. The syndrome resolved rapidly following discontinuation of the drug. Older patients may be particularly at risk for this adverse reaction with amoxapine.
