can taking antipsychotics antidepressants or benzodiazepines cause arthritis directly or indirectly?

No: I have not seen that. However, antipsychotics can cause muscle stiffness/spasm that may result in limited motion. There are side effect medications for that, or sometimes people need a dose decrease or med change.
