Tardive dyskinesia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tardive dyskinesia usually occurs late in neuroleptic treatment and often appears only when neuroleptic medication is discontinued. As opposed to the other three extrapyramidal side-effects, tardive dyskinesia is relatively refractory to treatment and is often considered an untreatable, permanent side-effect of neuroleptic medications. The following case report illustrates many of the problems associated with the management of tardive dyskinesia. A pharmacological model is discussed.
