Dyskinesia - Definition

April 2017


Definition


Dyskinesia refers to abnormal muscular activity. This anomaly leads to involuntary movements of the head, the face, the tongue, but also of the members of the torso, even the cardiac muscle. During the sleep phase of the subject, the involuntary movements cease. Neuroleptics are among the medications that may provoke dyskinesia, but ending their use does not guarantee the complete cessation of involuntary movements. Taking vitamin E as a supplement can give positive results.
