Drugs that block dopaminergic transmission are currently widely used in the treatment of psychiatric diseases. One of the significant, common complications of therapy are tardive dyskinesias, which develop after prolonged, at least 3 months, therapy with antipsychotics and significantly reduce the quality of life of patients. Tardive dyskinesia is an extrapyramidal disorder, mainly manifested by involuntary hyperkinesis of the muscles of the face and tongue. These movements negatively affect the patient's daily activities and quality of life. This article reviews the currently available treatment strategies for this type of disorder. One of the promising methods is therapy with Normokinesin (tetrabenazine), which, by reducing dopaminergic stimulation of brain neurons, significantly reduces hyperkinesis.
