    Unfortunately more cases of tardive dyskinesia are showing up with the newer atypical antipsychotics as well as with other new drugs like Requip (for restless leg syndrome). It is a major concern.

    Interesting article-thanks for sharing. difficult child was diagnosis with this when he was on abilify for a very short term and it was not permanent. Interesting that according to the article they shouldn't have been able to diagnosis it that quickly, although I do believe that is what he had.

    I don't think they like to diagnose Tardive Dyskinesia so they just call it "reslessness", "abnormal movements" or some other more innocuous term.
