Dweii Posted December 11, 2006 Share Posted December 11, 2006 Lately (could be the past few weeks, or months, my estimation of time passed has always been crappy...), I have involuntary muscle movements. Usually they are so small you can't see them, but I can definitely feel them. They're basically everywhere except my face; arms, legs, fingers, toes, even my stomach muscles. They seem to come more frequently when I'm tired. I mentioned this to my pdoc and she said TD is usually in the face and that it didn't sound like what I described. She didn't really take it seriously, and I, in love with Geodon as I am, didn't want to either. Now though, looking at the Wikipedia entry for it, I got scared. "Dyskinesia means "abnormal movement" and tardive means "late", signifying that the dyskinesia only occurs after some time has elapsed following initial administration of the neuroleptic drug." Yup, been on Geodon now for eight months. "female patients are more prone to develop tardive dyskinesia. Cigarette smokers also have a higher prevalence of tardive dyskinesia." Guilty of both. "Tardive dyskinesia is characterized by repetitive, involuntary, purposeless movements." ... "Rapid movements of the arms, legs, and trunk may also occur." Bleh. What to do now?
