Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a movement disorder caused by the long-term use of dopaminergic antagonists or other antipsychotic medications. Patients with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or bipolar disorder who have a history of long-term use of dopaminergic antagonist medications are most susceptible to developing TD; however, patients with developmental disabilities or other neurologic disorders who take these drugs may also be affected. In addition to TD, these patient populations are susceptible to a variety of other movement disorders that can be mistaken for TD, making awareness of differences a clinical necessity.

Clinicians should have a clear understanding of causative agents associated with TD and optimal treatment strategies. How much do you know about TD? Check your knowledge with our short quiz.
