4 doctors agree

In brief: Some

Yes for the first 3 which are 1st generation antipsychotic meds.
I've not heard of it or suspect for cardiazem (diltiazem) which is a heart med. Extrapyramidal sx (eps) include: tremors, stiffness, restlessness. They can be managed by dosage reduction, change in med or by giving meds that counter such as cogentin, propranolol, amantadine and sometime ativan.
