Discussions that mention seroquel

Schizophrenia board

I didn't know this, but Risperdal, being an atypical anti-psychotic, is not known to cause tardive dyskinesia. It, along with others like it such as Seroquel and Zyprexa, are more modern and were actually designed to stop such intense side effects as tardive dyskinesia. The traditional anti-psychotics, most notably Thorazine and Haldol, are the medications that cause tardive dyskinesia, and they are rarely used anymore because of this very reason. Usually, a patient will only take Thorazine or Haldol for one of three reasons: they are given an injection to be hospitalized when they are severely psychotic, no other medications have been effective, or they have a particularly severe case of schizophrenia, most often the disorganized type. :angel:
