I have been on Trilaphon (perphenazine) and Lithium for 20

This answer was rated:

I have been on Trilaphon (perphenazine) and Lithium for 20 years and my tremor is getting worse. Could this be the onset of tartive disconesia?


Tardive dyskinesia is associated with the perphenazine and your physician must consider this possibility, looking in to your so long history of medication. Lithium too can cause the increase in the tremor as a side effect and this can happen any time during the treatment. Read the resources;
