Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a serious and often irreversible involuntary muscle movement that involves the face, lips, tongue, trunk, and extremities. TD is a risk in the use of antipsychotic medications, whether it is typical or first generation or atypical or second-generation antipsychotic. The risk is highest in patients receiving long-term antipsychotic treatment.
