Don’t ignore persistent, uncontrollable body movements that could be tardive dyskinesia (TD). Talk to your healthcare provider right away.
Tardive dyskinesia (TD) signs and symptoms:
TD movements can occur anywhere in the body.
- Face (mouth, lips, tongue, jaw, eyes)
- Upper body (arms, torso)
If you experience persistent, uncontrollable movements, don’t ignore them. Talk to your healthcare provider right away about a treatable condition called TD.
TD is a distinct condition and different from other drug-induced movement disorders.
Have you experienced any of the following uncontrollable
or involuntary movements?
Lip smacking, puckering, or pursing
Tongue darting or protrusion
Jaw sawing or chewing
Upper body rocking, jerking, or thrusting
Twisting or dancing fingers and toes
Since TD is unlikely to get better on its own, it’s important to take control and talk to your healthcare provider about treatment.
INGREZZA® (valbenazine) capsules is the only treatment proven to reduce TD that's always one capsule, once daily. And it's #1 prescribed.
What medicines can cause tardive dyskinesia (TD)?
You may have been prescribed certain mental health medicines (antipsychotics) to treat one of these conditions:
- Bipolar disorder
- Schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder
- Anxiety disorder
If you are currently taking antipsychotic medicine, do not stop, adjust, or switch your medicine without talking to your healthcare provider. Continue taking your medicine as prescribed and be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about TD and FDA-approved treatments, like INGREZZA.
People taking INGREZZA for TD can stay on their current dose of most mental health medicines.

“Because of my uncontrollable body movements I was extremely self-conscious, embarrassed, and withdrawn. I had a very active lifestyle before these movements. INGREZZA has made a difference in my TD movements.”
