Last December 2010, my 24 year old daughter developed Tardive Dyskinesia after coming off Risperdal she was prescribed when diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia, 8 months beforehand. Since her phycosis came back within 2 weeks of going off the medication they put her on Clozapine which is least likely to cause the movement disorder or worsen it.
To date, her doctor has her on mega vitamin doses including Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba and Niacin as well as other vitamins, all of which have shown good results in some people in studies but not her. She eats a pretty clean diet and is vegetarian.
Her neuropsychiatrist has her on Amantadine as well as Propranalol since she also has akathesia. Nothing seems to help with her involuntary movements though.
Other doctors have tried different meds including ones for Parkinson’s, epilepsy etc.
Has anyone out there been treated for this disorder, I would appreciate some feedback!
