I went through something very similar. I was in rehab and on a suboxon taper. I was completely off for about 2 days when all of a sudden I lost control over my tongue mucsels and by tongue began trashing and sticking out of my mouth uncontrollably. I also went to the er and they gave me 75 mg of benadryl and my symptoms lessened a lot. I also had uncontrolled twitching of my hands and feet. This symptoms started again as soon as the benadryl wore off, they also seemed to get worse the more anxiety i was under or more stressed i became. I went back on suboxon and i have not had another episode of what seems to be tardive dyskensia
