    Hi-
    Have you told your Dr? Sounds like Tardive Dyskinisia. I also have that except it ussually just shows up in my tongue and occasionally my fingers. It seems to get worse when I am nervous/anxious oer if I have taken my doses of Adderall too close together. It seems to be dose dependent. I took 160mg-240mg Geodon for 6 years and have now been down to 60-120mg Geodon for 6 months. My TD got alot better when I lowered my dose. But it still bothers me and I have ALOT of fear that it will get worse and/or be permanent. I mean, it is difficult to be in public when I am suffering from my symptoms, but it would be worse if my tongue was constantly going in and out of my mouth!!! I'd deffinitly talk to your DR because TD can be permanant and thdey don't know bareley anything about it and there arn't really any effective treatments or cures. Good Luck!
