It is, however, possible that clomipramine might have caused a rise in olanzapine blood concentrations, which were not measured. K. Aronson,ed. 13 Chapter 2 14 SELECTIVE RE-UPTAKE SEROTONIN INHIBITORS (SSRIs) (SED-14, 67; SEDA-22, 11; SEDA-23, 17; SEDA-24, 14) Nervous system SSRIs can infrequently cause extrapyramidal movement disorders and can also worsen established Parkinson's disease (SEDA-22, 23) and another case has been reported (5A). A 68-year-old woman developed major depression. A neurological assessment excluded neurological diseases, including Parkinson's disease.

There were no causally-associated cardiac rhythm disturbances or liver disorders. The authors suggested that the abnormal dreams and psychiatric disturbances were possible adverse drug reactions that require further confirmation. Nervous system Restless legs, mumbling, and stuttering have been reported in a patient taking donepezil (62A). According to the Naranjo probability scale, the causality was probable, since rechallenge was positive. ReginaldP Sequeira Extrapyramidal effects have been reported in three patients taking donepezil; in two cases the effects disappeared when donepezil was withdrawn (63A).
