INGREZZA® (valbenazine) capsules is the only treatment proven to reduce TD that's always one capsule, once daily. And it's #1 prescribed.
7 out of 10 people
In a clinical study, 7 out of 10 people taking INGREZZA 80 mg saw reduction in uncontrollable body movements at 6 weeks.*
Results in 6 weeks
And in the same clinical study, many people taking INGREZZA began to see results in as little as 2 weeks.†
48 weeks of continued reduction
In a long-term study, INGREZZA provided continued reduction in uncontrollable body movements through 48 weeks.
*Patients had at least a 1-point reduction on an uncontrollable movement severity scale at 6 weeks vs before treatment. This post-clinical study evaluation included 70 patients taking INGREZZA 80 mg, measuring uncontrollable movements before starting treatment and at 6 weeks of treatment.
†INGREZZA was studied in a 6-week clinical trial. A total of 234 people participated in the study. Results were based on 79 people taking the recommended dose of 80 mg.

How INGREZZA works
Some mental health medicines (antipsychotics) can cause abnormal dopamine signaling in the brain. This abnormal signaling can lead to uncontrollable body movements called tardive dyskinesia.
Current research suggests that INGREZZA helps by correcting this abnormal dopamine signaling; however, how INGREZZA works to treat TD is not fully understood.
- Dopamine is a chemical in the brain that helps control movement
- TD may be caused by too much dopamine signaling in the brain
- INGREZZA is believed to reduce extra dopamine signaling
Did you know?
Since tardive dyskinesia (TD) is unlikely to get better on its own, it is important to take control and talk to your healthcare provider about treatment.
