Today's episode is about the management of tardive dyskinesia.

Here are some questions we cover in this episode:

  •  What is the best way to approach tardive dyskinesia? This episode will discuss an algorithm with levels of evidence for each treatment option.
  • What is the evidence level for second-generation VMAT-2 inhibitors, such as deutetrabenazine and valbenazine?
  • Is there evidence for prescribing anticholinergics in tardive dyskinesia? Should you use them?
  • What options do you have if a VMAT inhibitor is not effective or well tolerated?
