Dyskinesias are involuntary, erratic movements of the face, limbs, or torso that occur as a side effect of levodopa. Levodopa is a medication that is used to manage Parkinson’s disease. Some people may not notice dyskinesias or may not be bothered by them. In other cases, these movements can be troublesome or interfere with daily activities.
If dyskinesias bother you, there are steps you can take to manage them.
