Tardive dyskinesia (TD), a heterogenous and generally persistent disorder of involuntary hyperkinetic movements of the body and face, is a common potential side effect of treatment with antipsychotic medications. Affecting over 500,000 people in the United States, TD significantly diminishes quality of life, impacting all aspects of patients’ lives and contributing to high rates of nonadherence to antipsychotic therapy and suboptimal outcomes. Although recognition, assessment, and management of TD have improved since the 2017 FDA approval of two novel vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT-2) inhibitors for the treatment of TD, a variety of myths and misconceptions regarding this condition and its optimal management persist. This session will address these common myths and misconceptions in order to improve TD management and positively impact patient outcomes.
