In brief: Tardive Dyskinesia

Patients are more likely to develop tardive dyskinesia when using psychotropic medications.
SSRIs, stimulant medications and illegal drugs. Discontinuance of the offending agent is the most important treatment of TD.

In brief: Change medication

Tardive dyskinesia has a variable prognosis but is most often associated with the earlier or typical anti-psychotic drugs.
Changing to atypical or later manufacture drugs of this class may help reduce the involuntary movements. Some classes of parkinson's medications and even benzodiazepines have been helpful in selected patients. Please see your neurologist to obtain help with this problem.
