Teva recently undertook a research survey in the United States to assess the overall impact of tardive dyskinesia (TD) on people’s lives. The survey asked people with major depressive disorder (MDD) and TD, bipolar disorder and TD, or schizophrenia and TD about the physical, psychological, social, and professional effects of TD. It also questioned the caregivers of people with TD to understand how their lives were affected by TD.

The survey gives an insight into what it is like to live with TD.

For questions that highlight the difficulty in doing something, such as holding a glass, we show the percentages for people who say they have at least some difficultly—those who say they do it ‘with some difficulty’, ‘with much difficulty’, or are ‘unable to do’ because of TD.

Where we asked how often people experienced something, such as trouble chewing or feeling embarrassed, we give the findings for people who said they had experienced it at least some of the time—those who say this happened ‘sometimes’, ‘often’, or ‘always’ as an effect of TD.

For questions on the extent of the impact of TD, such as on their ability to eat or speak clearly, we give the percentages for people who said they were at least somewhat affected by their TD—those who say there was ‘somewhat’, ‘quite a bit’, or ‘very much’ an impact of TD.
