Answer

Answer

Patients often have movement disorders that may actually represent a mixture or overlap of several dyskinesia disorders. Individuals treated with neuroleptics may demonstrate both acute and chronic effects, manifested by acute dyskinesias and tardive dyskinesia (TD). Akathisia and tics may be manifested simultaneously after long-term treatment with neuroleptics.
