Tremor and tardive dyskinesia

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 47(9): 461-464
Tremor and tardive dyskinesia
A retrospective review of charts for the prevalence of tremor in patients with tardive dyskinesia revealed that 10% of 232 patients with a diagnosis of tardive dyskinesia also had parkinson-like tremor. No demographic or clinical risk factors for this tremor could be identified. The body areas affected by tremor are described, and it is suggested that tremor occurring in areas other than the wrist may pose a problem in differential diagnosis of patients with tardive dyskinesia. Changes in tremor and tardive dyskinesia after alterations in medication dose are reported, and recommendations for management are given.
