i don't know anything about the new td drugs. they are ridiculously expen$ive, which should not be the case (a) and should not be a barrier (b), but...

? I dunno how it plays out in "the real world," obviously.

Orthomolecular has been a godsend for me. deal is...the focus is not on a single agent. If I recall correctly, OM cocktails for existing TD (vs prevention) would probably look something like this...

vitamin E (I've had better results with natural form...) 1600 least 3 grams C (ideally, dosed throughout the day...) a potent B-complex (think b-50 or b-100, again: 2+ times per day, with food. I'm lazy, so its all about the time release B-100 tabs)...

some flavor B3 (niacin, niacinamide, "no flush niacin;" you have options) 3,000 mgs/daily seems to be standard, after relatively brief titration. the C should -at least- match the B3 dosage.

some research indicates taurine might be helpful. 4 grams/taurine daily has been used in conjunction with the newer tranquilizers for more rapid and complete symptom relief. amino acid, so try it on an empty stomach.

if sleep is an issue, melatonin (10mgs/nightly) has shown some promise in TD. some researchers are concerned about metabolic ill effects. B3 megadoses also boost melatonin levels, over time.

a decent multi-vitamin. manganese...I forget the recommended dosage...

on top of the B-complex, b6. has been used to relieve akathisia, reduced AIMS scores in some trials.

and then...

honestly, it seems just about every antioxidant, ever. seriously. some more so than others. gingko biloba has fans (and a little bit of data, it seems).

i hope this helps. :-)
