My 7 year old took Quillivant XR for the first time ever yesterday. Prior to this, he has never taken any ADHD medicines. He started moving his mouth and tongue repeatedly a few hours later until about 10-11 hours after the dose. Has anyone had this? I'm scared to try any additional medication on him now. The dr said she's never had anyone have this side effect. Thanks
I was recently diagnosed with tardive dyskinesia. I stopped the antipsychotic, Geodon, and switched to Depakot. At the same time, I began Amandtadine to treat the tardive dyskinesia. I immediately began to stutter and it has gotten progressively worse over the past two months. My doctors seem clueless. Anyone with any info/advise about my situation?

Hi I have tardive dyskinesia and not sure if it has come from Effexor XR or Ritalian LA - I have been taking both daily for years. Most likely the Effexor XR I believe - 71 yr old female. Any feedback would be appreciated. I would like to trial tapering or something similar as tongue movements are making my mouth (especially tongue) very sore every day now.
I took saphris 10mg for 2 years for bipolar disorder - and it changed my life .... everything I used to find difficult was easy, and I finally felt "normal". About a year into treatment, something strange started happening with my toungue. It just felt too big for my mouth and I was biting it all the time. My Psych assured me it was not TD, and I went on to see several specialists, to no avail. A year later, my toungue and jaw were really starting to noticeably move - my speech was compromised, and I was really getting embarrassed. Stopped saphris, and TD became full blown. Went to the Cleveland Clinic movement disorders division, and they diagnosed me with TD. Said symptoms would likely resolve on their own. It's gotten better than when I first was diagnosed, but I have seen little if any change the last 2 months, and wonder if it's permanent. It's really humiliating.
I suffered TD after being given Fentazin and Norval for after flu symptoms in 1980's I shook from waist down went hot and would have vomiting and off food. Housework could only get around on hands and knees. Saw a specialist but non of the medication worked. Forwarding to 1989 after a hysterectomy was given METACLOPRMIDE and wall the shaking came back big time. Was treated by Chinese acupuncturist and gradually over a year lessened but not gone. I have stopped shaking but have to be careful of what I take at hospital or surgery. This is only a short version of my story but it was horrendous. Now on Clonazapam as my last Dr saw me shaking all over the place. Best of luck all of you.
I have been diagnosed for tardiness dyskinesia , as well as ;tardive akathsia. My symptoms are worsening which my neurologist does not understand why this is happening. I am frustrated as I do not always feel heard
