Prescription Information


Tardive refers to something that is late in appearing. For example, the characteristic symptom of a disease, such as a lesion, may occur a long period after exposure. A Tardive symptom could be contrasted with an acute symptom, which appears soon after injury or exposure to disease, although it may also mean a symptom that is gone quickly. On the other hand, chronic conditions are not late-appearing, they are long-lasting. In the medical field, Tardive is most commonly associated with Tardive neurological disorders, such as Tardive dyskinesia, Tardive dystonia, Tardive psychosis and Tardive akathisia. These disorders arise from the longterm usage of anti-psychotic medication. In addition, there is Eisenmenger's syndrome, also called Tardive cyanosis. However, it is unrelated to the other disorders.
