A Review on Tardive Dyskinesia

Investigators provided a review that emphasizes a prevention-based focus on the treatment of TD through the clinical consideration of pharmacologic selections linked to individual patient history. They performed a search through PubMed with keywords and combined searches involving medication-induced TD in addition to therapies that are linked to causing or are used to treat TD. They aimed to use recent articles that were published no earlier than 2015. The findings indicated that the risk of TD remains with atypical antipsychotic drugs, but the incidence is reduced. In addition, various other classes of medications have a high prevalence of TD that are not particularly known to induce TD.
