Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a movement disorder characterized by involuntary movements of the tongue, lips, face, trunk, and extremities that occur in patients treated with dopamine receptor blocking agents (DRBAs). Patients can have symptoms that persist for months, years, or even permanently. Greater awareness about risk factors and which agents may be associated with higher likelihood of developing TD is critical to reduce the prevalence of this disorder. Understanding the most effective novel treatment approaches to TD is also important. In this episode, Dr. Andrew Cutler interviews Dr. Jonathan Meyer about the current best practices in the diagnosis, recognition, and treatment of tardive dyskinesia.
