high doses of vitamin E for tardive dyskinesia
You'll see physicians trying high doses of vitamin E for tardive dyskinesia.
Up to 25% of patients on chronic neuroleptics develop symptoms of tardive dyskinesia...tics, grimacing, writhing, etc. In some cases symptoms persist even if the neuroleptic is discontinued.
Now there's growing evidence that vitamin E sometimes helps...especially if it's started within 5 years of onset.
