Hi Tammy

I am so sorry about your daughter's side effects from the respirdal. I can only imagine the anguish and frustration that you and her father are going through now.

I did a preliminary search on google and there are some who say that some nutritional supplements --primarily lecithin and vitamin e -- can over time help reverse the symptoms. I have no experience with either TD or antipsychotic or neuroleptic drugs, so don't take my word for it, but it's something you might want to check out. It certainly shouldn't make her any worse. I used "tardive lecithin" for a search string and got several good hits in a long list -- I stopped reading them after the first six or so. It might take a couple of hours to do the research but it might help her.

One thing I did notice -- was that it said at least a month to see improvement, as the nerve sheaths have to regenerate the damage, and that major resolution of symptoms, for those who improve, takes several months.

Good luck to you, and I wish you the best.
