In a recent interview, hosted by Matthew Shapiro and Haley Amering, they welcomed Dr. Michael Asbach to discuss tardive dyskinesia (TD) to shed light on this often misunderstood drug-induced movement disorder. Dr. Asbach emphasized that TD is not limited to individuals with severe mental illnesses like schizophrenia; it can also impact people on various medications for different conditions. Shapiro stresses the importance of awareness, urging individuals to discuss any abnormal movements with their healthcare provider. Ultimately, the video aims to raise awareness about TD during TD Awareness Week, highlighting the significance of recognizing symptoms and seeking appropriate medical guidance.
