Tardive Dyskinesia

Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is an abnormal involuntary movement disorder that arises as a common adverse effect in patients using antipsychotic medications, occurring in an estimated 20% of this population. This condition inflicts a substantial negative impact on patient quality of life and clinical outcomes and contributes to the significant rate of nonadherence to antipsychotic medication regimens.

Tardive Dyskinesia 360 is a resource center built for mental health practitioners, designed to educate providers on the proper screening, diagnosis, and treatment of TD. Explore expert video commentary, patient cases activities, instructional videos, and stay up to date on the latest information related to TD care.

This initiative is supported by independent educational grants from Neurocrine Biosciences and Teva Pharmaceuticals.
