TD requires an individualized treatment plan

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

  • Your TD symptoms.
  • 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.

Talking to your doctor about TD

Partnering with your doctor is the first step to see if you can do something about your tardive dyskinesia.
