Could I be getting td from…

Taking a 10 mg prn of Thorazine here and there??? What else could it be??? I’ve been on abilify for 7 1/2 years now. Naltrexone for 6 couldn’t have started it. Klonopin for 11 years…nope!!

Thorazine is my newest med. but I don’t even take it every day!!! But it seems to be causing my head to bop back and forth. And tremors, shaking. It’s working so well!!! Frustrating.


Tell your psychiatrist straight away. They’ll hopefully just give you something else.


TD is not funny. Hope your Pdoc can sort it out very soon.


Jonny be good and tell your psychiatrist before it becomes irreversible. Thorazine is first gen and more likely to cause TD than abilify.

If U feel like you’re developing TD, your best option is to start drinking caffeine and exercising lots, and easy with the weed cuz it can aggravate it.

Maybe I should just try upping my abilify dose. Or have a 5 mg prn of abilify for later.

I know what you say about abilify, but it’s probably Thorazine or mixing aps that’s most causing it. Abilify alone I had no problem with. Pdoc tomorrow I’ll bring up all these points.

Abilify cause my td which is funny because it was designed to not cause it.

TD rates increase steadily with years of use and all APs can cause it. Abilify is the likely culprit and the rate of TD is dose-dependent, so be careful with increasing your dose. Talk to your psychiatrist. There are ways of managing TD.
