Maybe it'll help you:
Particularly in psychiatry (I'm a psychiatrist :-)), I think about it as scales - on one side DA on other Ach. So when you block D2 (haloperidol) you would have EPS and treat it with central Ach blockers such as trihexyphenidyl.

P.S. in kaplan there is good explanation (all these inhibitory and excitatory pathways)
