In brief: TD

Repetitive involuntary purposeless movements such as grimacing, lip smacking, tongue protrusion.
Is result of long-term use of antipsychotic drugs, & some drugs for vomiting such as promethazine. Cause is unknown but thought to be due to Dopamine super sensitivity caused by these drugs. Refer to my answer on TD treatments.
