Study group discussion: Drug for neurological manifestations of Wilson's disease

Review question-
Which drug is used for neurological manifestations of Wilson's disease?

Penicillamine (cuprimine and depen) and trientine (syprine and trientine dihydrochloride).
Both of these drugs act by chelation of binding of copper, causing it's increased urinary excretion.

Yes, but any specific drug for neurological involvement?

It's Ammonium tetrathiomolybdate.
