Ingrezza is indicated for the treatment of adults with tardive dyskinesia. The initial dose for Ingrezza is 40 mg once daily. After one week, increase the dose to the recommended dose of 80 mg once daily. Continuation of 40 mg once daily may be considered for some patients.
You may start to see results as early as 2 weeks. Clinical studies of Ingrezza showed that the medication remained effective in treating TD for at least 48 weeks. At 48 weeks of treatment, people taking the drug reported about a 39% decrease in their TD symptoms.
In clinical trials, Ingrezza was effective at reducing TD symptoms. After 6 weeks of treatment, 40% of people taking 80 mg of Ingrezza daily had at least a 50% decrease in their TD symptoms. In comparison, 8.7% of people taking a placebo (treatment with no active drug) had the same result.
Common side effects of Ingrezza include:
- dry mouth,
- difficulty paying attention,
- blurred vision,
- urinary retention,
- gait disturbance,
- trouble with balance or coordination,
- nausea, and
- joint pain.
Take Ingrezza exactly as your doctor tells you to. Do not stop taking Ingrezza without talking to your doctor first. Ingrezza can be taken with or without food.
Talk to your doctor about the best time to take Ingrezza. Your doctor may recommend taking the medication before bedtime because it may cause drowsiness.

Tardive dyskinesia is mainly caused by the use of neuroleptic drugs. These drugs are prescribed for psychiatirc disorders (and some gastrointestinal and neurological issues) and work by blocking the body’s receptors for dopamine.
Generally speaking, people with tardive dyskinesia have abnormal movements that are rapid, brief, jerky, discrete, and stereotyped. People with tardive dystonia have abnormal movements that are slower, painful, and twisting, and force parts of the body into unnatural postures.
Tardive means tending to or characterized by lateness especially in development or maturity.
Because tardive dyskinesia is most often caused by long-term treatment with antipsychotic drugs, according to the American Academy of Neurology, it’s considered a side effect of the medication – not a disease. Although it can be reversed, the condition is permanent in the majority of people.
Although there is no definitive cure for every person that has tardive dyskinesia, newer neurolepticas combined with new FDA-approved treatments offer hope for this condition.
Tardive dyskinesia movements are exacerbated by emotional arousal, decrease with relaxation, and disappear with sleep.
