tardive dyskinesia

« Back to Glossary Index

Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary movements, such as twitching, grimacing, or repetitive movements of the tongue or face. TD can be a side effect of long-term use of certain medications, including antipsychotic medications. It can be irreversible in some cases and can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. Treatment for TD may include discontinuation of the medication causing the symptoms, switching to a different medication, or medication to help manage symptoms. It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms of TD occur, as early intervention may improve outcomes.
