    Explanation
    Pseudoparkinsonism is a common symptom of EPS (extrapyramidal symptoms). EPS is a side effect of certain medications, particularly antipsychotic drugs, which can cause movement disorders similar to Parkinson's disease. Pseudoparkinsonism is characterized by symptoms such as tremors, rigidity, bradykinesia (slowness of movement), and postural instability. It is important to recognize and differentiate pseudoparkinsonism from actual Parkinson's disease, as the treatment approaches may differ.

    Tardive dyskinesia is a condition characterized by involuntary and repetitive movements that cannot be controlled voluntarily. These movements are often irreversible, meaning they cannot be reversed or stopped once they occur. Tardive dyskinesia is usually a side effect of long-term use of certain medications, particularly antipsychotic drugs. It commonly affects the face, lips, tongue, and other parts of the body, causing twitching, grimacing, and other abnormal movements. It is important to note that tardive dyskinesia is a chronic condition that can significantly impact a person's quality of life.
