Generally the treatments for dystonia focus on the relaxation of the muscles rather than just focusing on the symptom such as pain caused by the muscle spasms. Different medications are tried in an effort to find a combination that is effective for a specific person. Not all people will respond well to the same medications. Medications that have had positive results in some include: diphenhydramine, benzatropine, anti-Parkinsons agents ( such as trihexyphenidyl), and muscle relaxers (such as diazepam).
Tardive dystonia is drug induced. Are you still taking the inducing agent? Is your dystonia from a particular medication? Are you in a lot of pain?
