The atypical anti-psychotics such as Risperdal, Seroquel, and Zyprexa, were actually designed to eliminate the risk of tardive dyskinesia. There's a very low risk of developing it if you're taking an atypical anti-psychotic. It's the traditional anti-psychotics like Thorazine and Haldol that can cause tardive dyskinesia with prolonged use. However, the traditional anti-psychotics are rarely used anymore because of this reason. Now, drugs like Thorazine and Haldol are only used to calm down a severely psychotic patient suffering from schizophrenia or acute mania when they're first admitted to a hospital, or for very severe cases of disorganized schizophrenia. :angel:
