How do you treat tardive dyskinesia?

ANSWER

If you have movement problems, tell your doctor but don't stop taking your prescription. You may be able to switch to a different medication or take a lower the dose.

A few drugs might ease the movements, including:

  • Amantadine (Symmetrel)
  • Clonazepam (Klonopin)
  • Tetrabenazine (Xenazine)

Natural remedies might help with movements, too:

  • Ginkgo biloba
  • Melatonin
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin E

Talk to your doctor before you take any supplements for your symptoms.
