  • Comment on Akbar et al., "Valbenazine-induced parkinsonism". [Letter]
    Parkinsonism Relat Disord 2020; 71:35Shah C
  • This letter to the editor acknowledges the contribution of Akbar et al. to the field of tardive dyskinesia (TD) and provides important regulatory information about the potential for parkinson-like symptoms in patients with TD who are treated with valbenazine.
  • Valbenazine and deutetrabenazine: Vesicular monoamine transporter 2 inhibitors for tardive dyskinesia. [Journal Article]
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2020; 77(3):167-174Khorassani F, Luther K, Talreja O
  • CONCLUSIONS: A literature search was conducted to gather relevant data regarding the use of valbenazine and deutetrabenazine for TD management. PubMed, MEDLINE, and ClinicalTrials.gov were searched using the following keywords and MeSH terms: valbenazine, deutetrabenazine, tardive dyskinesia, VMAT2 inhibitors, and vesicular monoamine transporter 2 inhibitors. Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials and meta-analyses published in English from April 2015 to August 2019 were included. Valbenazine 40-80 mg and deutetrabenazine 12-36 mg per day have been evaluated for the treatment of TD. Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale (AIMS) scores decline similarly (by 2-5 points) with use of either agent. AIMS response rates, defined by a 50% decline in symptoms, range from 33% to 50%. Both agents are well tolerated, with somnolence and akathisia reported most frequently (at low rates). Agent selection may be guided by manufacturer labeling recommendations for special populations and cost considerations.Valbenazine and deutetrabenazine were demonstrated to be effective in decreasing AIMS scores and were well tolerated in randomized controlled trials. These treatments may be considered as a next-line option when traditional strategies are not feasible or are ineffective. Head-to-head studies are warranted to decipher if either agent is preferable in terms of efficacy or tolerability.
  • FDA-Approved Medications to Treat Tardive Dyskinesia. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Psychiatry 2019; 81(1)McEvoy JP
  • Tardive dyskinesia (TD), a condition characterized by involuntary movements, is found in patients taking antipsychotics or other agents that block dopamine receptors. Symptoms of TD are associated with reduced quality of life, psychosocial problems, and medication nonadherence. Few agents tested in the treatment of TD had sufficient data to support or refute their use, until recently. A review of…
  • Role of Vesicular Monoamine Transporter 2 Inhibitors in Tardive Dyskinesia Management. [Review]
    Cureus 2019; 11(8):e5471Sreeram V, Shagufta S, Kagadkar F
  • Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a distressing and disabling movement disorder that occurs with the use of chronic neuroleptic medications. TD is defined as involuntary athetoid or choreiform movements of head, trunk or limbs. Tongue, lower face, jaw, and extremities are commonly involved but pharyngeal, diaphragmatic, or truncal muscles are also sometimes involved affecting breathing, swallowing, spee…
