Hi Scott,

It doesn't sound like your friend suffers from psychosis or mania. As a result, I would suggest avoidance of all antipsychotics completely.

Reason: mild TD often resolves eventually... at least in those who are not elderly.

I do not recommend any medication aimed at treating the symptoms, because the meds which can suppress the symptoms (eg. other antipsychotics) risk worsening the course of TD.

Anticholingergics can (at times) aggravate TD so are usually avoided.

Hopefully, it's possible to treat her depression without antipsychotics. This could resolve the situation in time.
