The smacking of the lips is called tardive dyskinesia, and it has been associated with any number of medications, lithium in particuliar, but also respiradol. Fill out an adverse reaction form on the FDA site. There is a good possibility you have identified the cause. If caused by medication, and the medication is not discontinued, the lip-smacking may be irreversable.

Hi there love2 ,    You most definitely do not have tardive dyskinesia. This  is a condition that comes from using some medications over many years , not a few days.  What you have experienced is a side effect.
