Effectiveness of vitamin E for treatment of long-term tardive dyskinesia.Am J Psychiatry 1994; 151(6):925-6AJ
Eleven patients with tardive dyskinesia were treated in a double-blind study of vitamin E or placebo for 12 weeks. Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale (AIMS) ratings were performed before and after treatment. Patients receiving vitamin E showed a significant reduction in their AIMS scale score, but patients receiving placebo showed no significant change. Vitamin E had a helpful effect even for patients whose tardive dyskinesia was mild and long-term.
