Managing your tardive dyskinesia (TD)

TD requires an individualized treatment plan

Together, you and your doctor can develop an individualized management plan based on

  • Your treatment goals
  • Your other medical conditions and medications

Depending on your other medical needs, you may be taking a variety of medications to achieve overall wellness. Partner with your primary doctor, neurologist, and/or psychiatrist to see if there is something you can do about your TD without disrupting your current medication routine.
