The Psychological Consequences of Tardive Dyskinesia the Effect of Drug-Induced Parkinsonism and the Topography of the Dyskinetic Movements

  • Keith W. Brown (a1) and Thomas White (a2)

Abstract

The effect of drug-induced Parkinsonism and of the topography of the dyskinetic movements on the psychological consequences of tardive dyskinesia was assessed in 20 schizophrenic subjects and 20 non-dyskinetic schizophrenic controls matched for age, sex, the presence of anticholinergic medication, and the presence and severity of drug-induced Parkinsonism. Limb–truncal subscale scores but not orofacial scores had a significant correlation with cognitive impairment and with negative symptoms. Drug-induced Parkinsonism was found to be a powerful confounding variable.
