Hi, I'm from Poland and I have tardive dyskinesia before using abilify. Is it possible to cure it? Without drugs? Because I had take it only four months and I had akathisia and doctor have me also akineton. I am only 23 years old. I have schizotypic disorder. Please answer. I need help.
My TD was caused by years of being on Abilify and Wellbutrin. My advice is to check all of your meds & perspective meds on a website like med.com to make sure that they're not contraindicated with Tardive Dyskinesia. My neurologist told me that there's 2 chances for TD to go away either when you stop the causative meds and the next is 3 years in they don't know why, but if it doesn't go away then it is permanent. Good luck.
I was told the same thing as hopingtosparkagain. My culprit was many years of risperidone. I am a little past 2 years and I still have it but it is under control for the most part with medication. My Dr and I research every new drug that she wants to use -or any other dr -for the side effects of TD. Stress is what really brings mine to the surface. I try to get some exercise at least every other day and pamper myself a couple days a week. It's amazing what your thoughts and mind can do to your physical health. I hope you find the answer you're looking for soon. Please share it with us. Good luck and God bless.
