Are uncontrollable movements in control of your body?

Body movements you can’t control could be tardive dyskinesia (TD).

If you or someone you know have taken certain medicines (antipsychotics) to treat bipolar disorder, depression, schizoaffective disorder, or anxiety disorder, and have persistent, uncontrollable body movements, ask your healthcare provider if it’s TD.

Diagnosis and treatment by a healthcare provider may help you manage your TD.

What is tardive dyskinesia (TD)?

TD means having uncontrollable body movements.

TD movements may look like uncontrollable face twitching, involuntary eye movements, darting tongue, piano fingers, clenched jaw, rocking torso, and gripping feet.

TD is not a side effect. It’s a real condition that affects approximately 600,000 people in the United States.
