I found amantadine to have a good antidepressant quality. Not as robust as the standard stimulants, but works well in a mix with antidepressants and a stimulant. May work well against t.d. I actually found amphetamine to be a good med to fight t.d. (Even though it is a suspected cause.) Yes, clonidine does have that depression-inducing quality, but in small doses, I found it useful for akathisia. That is the most intolerable aspect of EP symptoms, for me, anyway.

I was also thinking, amitriptyline has a strong anti-cholinergic profile, which may be also effective for depression. But, treatment response vs. side effects. Hmmmm..
