> None were on atypical antipsychotics. At least here in the US, atypical antipsychotics were not available in the market until 1990 (Clozaril was approved).

James here....

Then it is not new news nor is it highly predictive of the course of treatment for newer, post 1990 AP. 1 out of 4 taking older meds longterm will get TD or something like it....DUH !

I have seen chronic TD up close, it is not pretty.
But the benifits did out weight this side effect in chronic scitzohrenia. For me, I would not take a newer AP, for a non-psychotic condition, unless I had really tried everything else. We need more than 10 years sampling to say what the instance of TD is in the newer ones.
