Expect Ingrezza to Be Saved for Patients With Severe Tardive Dyskinesia

Ingrezza (in-GREH-zah, valbenazine) is the first drug approved for tardive dyskinesia...involuntary lip smacking, facial grimaces, etc.

Tardive dyskinesia is often caused by meds that block dopamine binding...such as antipsychotics (haloperidol, risperidone, etc) and metoclopramide (Reglan, etc).

Ingrezza decreases dopamine, which helps to reduce tardive dyskinesia symptoms.
