Neuroleptic-Induced Movement Disorders: A Comprehensive Survey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although generally beneficial, neuroleptics often cause adverse effects, of which movement disorders are the most serious in terms of frequency and persistence. This book was prepared with the aim of improving understanding and clinical management of these treatment-caused conditions. The authors address the historical, clinical and neurobiological aspects of the most serious of these conditions, tardive dyskinesia, as well as related movement disorders such as parkinsonism, dystonia and akathisia. The authors also devote sections of the text to the measurement of tardive dyskinesia, geographical and ethnic variables, and management with novel neuroleptic agents and biofeedback.
