  1. Not all that moves is tardive dyskinesia.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    Because tardive dyskinesia and spontaneous dyskinesia appear the same, it is difficult to determine whether an individual patient's abnormal movements are induced by medication or have developed spontaneously.

    Therefore, estimates of the prevalence of tardive dyskinesia that are based on observations not adjusted for spontaneous dyskinesia are inflated.

    In addition, age is thought to be an important risk factor in the development of both tardive and spontaneous dyskinesias.

    The authors estimate the prevalence of both disorders for specific age groups.

    Method

    The authors reviewed nine reports on dyskinesia prevalence that included history of neuroleptic treatment and related prevalence to age.
