When are involuntary lip movements a concern?

Recommended Posts

I have been on varying dises of anti psychotics for 15 years. I also have dry mouth.  I am on a whole slew of meds.

i find myself moving and licking ,my lips sometimes, i don 't know if others notice,

i will ask pdoc when  i see him next month, but i thought maybe someone here would have input..

I'm constantly moving me jaw back and forth since being on high-dose Abilify. My pdoc isn't very concerned about this. But I'm self-conscious about it...

Your doctor would actually need to examine you and see if it looks like TD. If it is, it’s not dangerous but is unlikely to go away, particularly without a change in meds.

Tryp, do you mean an md, doctor instead of pdoc?  Thank you

I agree that you should be seen by a doctor who has seen a lot of TD and can diagnose you. Sometimes we can have a fear like fear of TD and we become hyper-aware of every movement that we make and look to it for confirmation that we have that fear (TD). Your doctor can be objective plus he/she has seen TD before so knows what to look for.

Nope, a psychiatrist is the best one to look at it - they are MDs too :)
