Answer

Answer

Tardive blepharospasm can respond favorably to reduction or cessation of dopamine antagonists. Individuals who must be treated with neuroleptics often respond favorably to atypical neuroleptics. Additional treatments to consider include anticholinergics, dopamine-depleting agents, benzodiazepines, clozapine, and botulinum toxin.
