Tardive Syndromes in the Elderly

Kelvin L Chou et al. Clin Geriatr Med.


Tardive syndromes are characterized by abnormal involuntary movements that occur after prolonged exposure to drugs that block dopamine receptors. The prevalence and incidence of tardive syndromes are much higher in elderly individuals, and the number of elderly patients receiving antipsychotics has been increasing. This article summarizes the clinical phenomenology, pathophysiology, epidemiology, and treatment of these disorders in elderly individuals.
