In brief: Possible

Stop it now. The FDA issued a warning that if any movement disorder occurs to discontinue it and call your doctor. The warning also states that it should not be used for more than 12 weeks "in all but rare cases where therapeutic benefit is thought to outweigh the risk of developing tardive dyskinesia.
" Side effects may mimic Parkinsonism.
