Tardive dyskinesia and vitamin E

J.C. den Boer, H. Knegtering

In this araticle we discuss the hypothesis of free radical formation causing tardive dyskinesia.
On the basis of this hypothesis some studies have been published evaluating the effect of vitamin E, a free radical scavenger, on tardive dyskinesia. Out of ten studies, seven describe a positive effect. The results encourage further research.
