Q . All of the following drugs can cause Neuroleptic Malignant syndrome (NMS) except :

a. Amantadine
b. Domperidone
c. Haloperidol
d. Metoclopramide

Ans is A (amantadine) not B...
Domperidone may cause NMS though rarely... BUT AMANTADINE NEVER CAUSES NMS (its withdrawal can cause)..
This question is given wrongly in many MCQ books.
