Drug-induced movement disorders (DIMDs) constitute an important treatable subgroup of movement disorder. Recently, different DIMDs are classified into eight categories, according to the fifth edition of the 'Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5)' [1 ]. Dopamine receptor blockers agents (DRBAs) like neuroleptics, antiemetics, and gastrointestinal promotility agents, are the most common drug group causing movement disorder as a side effect.
