What you probably mean is "Parkinsonianism". That is another clinical term for what I have which is tardive dyskinesia. I cut and pasted this list of medications from a website and I believe it to be factual. There are treatments for it as well which I'll discuss in the next post as to avoid confusing the two. What medication did you take that you believe caused this to happen.


Compazine
Etrafon
Geodon
Haldol
Inapsine
Loxitane
Mellaril
Moban
Navane
Orap
Permitil and Prolixin
Phenergan
Reglan
Risperdal
Serentil
Seroquel
Stelazine
Taractan
Thorazine
Trilafon
Triavil
Zyprexa

First of all see a neurologist who is a movement disorders specialist to get an exact diagnosis. There are a variety of medications for tardive dyskinesia and most are medications used to treat Parkinsons'. Common ones include Aricept, Bachlophen, Requip and Mirapex. I couldn't tolerate any of those and was ruled out for Tetrabenzene because it could create depression in me. However, I've found Zofran to be extremely helpful. And the natural remedy rhodiola that was first studied by a clinical researcher at Columbia University has been of great help as well but both should be taken under a doctor's supervision. But make sure to get a diagnosis first as many movement disorders appear identical in their initial stages.

I have taken Seroquel for about 3 years, to help me sleep at night.  The most I have taken is 200 mg.

Well tardive dyskinesia is still a potential. It is more common statistically over time but since the potential is as my psychopharmocologist has said "for typical antipsychotics 5% per person per year and for atypical antipsychotics 2.5% per person per year" and "it happens eventually to everyone. It depends how bad it is" it is an ever present risk that must be monitored for as with every antipsychotic, except for Clozaril and the newer antipsychotics in study such as the Phase II antipsychotic glycine I'm on which is a glutamate antagonist. However, people still need to stay in treatment. But its unfortunate that for you Seroquel was given as a sleeping aide considering the risk of tardive dyskinesia. That's most likely what you have but I of course am not a provider. So see a neurologist who is a movement disorders specialist and ask about tardive dyskinesia and let them know you took Seroquel. And if you do have it the treatments I mentioned I am on, I find very effective as does my neurologist but there are different treatments to treat different forms of spasms. But get diagnosed first.
