Ask a Neurologist. Get Answers to Your Neurology Questions.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
medications like Geodon taken over a long period of time can cause tardive dyskinesia which can cause parkinsons like abnormal motor movements and abnormal mouth movements as well.
no, she shouldn't stop her Lamictal or Klonopin, those are not causing problems with her nerves and muscles.
you should ask her neurologist to call up her psychiatrist to discuss the case and talk about tardive dyskinesia
and how Geodon causes it and not Lamictal or Klonopin.
let me know if you have questions.
there are treatments for tardive dyskinesia.
do you have other questions?
I am still here willing to help you.
