Frequently asked questions

Below are answers to common questions about INGREZZA

Remember to always talk to your doctor about any questions you have about INGREZZA.

  • 1.

    What is INGREZZA?

    INGREZZA is a medicine that was designed to treat tardive dyskinesia (TD).

    It is the first prescription medicine approved by the FDA to treat adults with movements in the face, tongue, or other body parts that cannot be controlled (tardive dyskinesia). It is not known if INGREZZA is safe and effective in children.

    INGREZZA is taken once a day in capsule form and is available in two different doses.

  • 2.

    How does INGREZZA work in my body?

    Because INGREZZA was designed for TD, it is believed to work directly in the region of the brain that causes uncontrollable movements.

    TD is likely caused by prolonged use of certain medications that can cause irregular dopamine signaling in the brain, and INGREZZA is believed to reduce this signaling.

  • 3.

    Did INGREZZA improve uncontrollable movements in clinical trials?

    INGREZZA was studied in a 6-week clinical trial. The study measured the difference in people's uncontrollable movements from the beginning of the study and at 6 weeks, while observing the effect at certain times throughout the study.

    In 79 people taking the recommended INGREZZA dose of 80 mg, uncontrollable movements were reduced by ~30% at 6 weeks.

    Reductions in uncontrollable movements were seen in as early as 2 weeks.

  • 4.

    Will INGREZZA maintain reductions in my uncontrollable movements over time?

    INGREZZA reduced the uncontrollable movements of TD through almost 1 year.

    After completing the 6-week trial, participants were able to enroll in a 42-week extension period. Results were based on 63 people taking the recommended dose of 80 mg.

    The change in people's uncontrollable movements with INGREZZA was studied for a total of 48 weeks.

  • 5.

    What were common side effects with INGREZZA seen in clinical studies?

    In clinical trials, the most common side effect was sleepiness.

    INGREZZA may cause serious side effects, including sleepiness and heart rhythm problems. Tell your doctor right away if you have a change in your heartbeat (a fast or irregular heartbeat), or if you faint.

    Other side effects included:

    • Changes in balance or an increased risk of falls
    • Headache
    • Feelings of restlessness
    • Dry mouth
    • Constipation
    • Blurred vision

    These are not all of the possible side effects of INGREZZA.

  • 6.

    What is the dose of INGREZZA?

    Your doctor will start you on a 40-mg dose of INGREZZA. After 1 week, your doctor may increase your dose to 80 mg. Your doctor may keep you on the 40-mg dose based on your needs.

  • 7.

    How should I take INGREZZA?

    INGREZZA is a capsule that is taken once a day with or without food.
