yeah...TD isn't always a life long deal. The same antioxidant uber-cocktail I take to tackle my crazy and prevent TD has been used (at least, some parts of it) to help treat TD. From what I've read, vitamin E therapy in particular can be helpful if used in high doses and also in cases of 5 years or less durtation. The problem, of course, is that by the time TD pops up, you may have had TD that was masked by the neuroleptic for a while. Also, long-standing TD is associated with reduced cognitive performance, so its more than a bit troubling for us neuroleptic patients out there.

What I hate about psychiatrists' approach to TD is that it seems to be one of either disregard or concern for legal fall out. I've had maybe one psychiatrist (public health) who said she'd do AIMS tests and work out a long-term treatment plan if I showed early signs of TD. Everybody else acts like its the 60s again (TD?!? Not with these miracle wonder drugs! Nooooooo, never!) OR they just make you sign waivers.
