FAQs

Frequently asked questions

  • 1. 

    What is INGREZZA® (valbenazine) capsules?

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

    It is the first prescription medicine FDA-approved 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.

    Do not take INGREZZA if you are allergic to valbenazine or any of the ingredients in INGREZZA.

    INGREZZA is taken once a day in capsule form and is available in 2 different doses.

  • 2. 

    How does INGREZZA work in my body?

    INGREZZA was designed for TD and is thought to work directly in the region of the brain that causes uncontrollable movements.

    TD is likely caused by prolonged use of certain medications that cause irregular dopamine signaling in the brain, and INGREZZA is thought 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. 

    Is INGREZZA really helping my symptoms?

    Ask your doctor to explain how the medicine works, when to expect results, and to clarify the goals of your treatment, including what you should look for to know if it’s working.

Caring for someone with TD may be challenging

As a caregiver of someone living with TD, you may be taking on the responsibility of identifying and managing their uncontrollable movements.

It’s helpful to try to remember that your loved ones

  • May not know if the uncontrollable movements they are exhibiting are TD
  • May reject seeking help because they can’t understand their condition

Start an open discussion with their doctor and healthcare team

  • They can provide answers to questions on identifying and managing TD

  • You can help them stay up-to-date on your loved one’s movement changes and progress

“After Moira started INGREZZA, I watched her very carefully because she was constantly asking me if she’s doing better. By a month’s end, we were noticing a difference.”

—Forrest, husband and caregiver for Moira
