Lithium and Tardive Dyskinesia

On the Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network, Dr. Goldberg discusses the link between lithium and tardive dyskinesia (TD). While rare, Dr. Goldberg states that there is evidence of lithium causing TD in case reports. He also states what the course of action may be for someone who has taken lithium for 30 years who has suddenly developed shaking.
