This is the most important part of the blog for those on antipsychotics. Please, read this very carefully.
Tardive Dyskinesia is caused in two ways:
1.) AN INGESTION OF A LARGE DOSE OF ANTIPSYCHOTICS.
2.) INGESTION OF DOSAGES OF ANTIPSYCHOTICS OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.
Tardive Dyskinesia can manifest itself at any time it chooses to do so.
One dose may trigger it or 2,000 may trigger it.
Even after you stop the antipsychotic it may remain permanently.
Even after you stop the antipsychotic it may recur periodically.
