Antioxidants (and high dose b-vitamins) can reduce oxidative stress and brighten mood, help anxiety and concentration. b-vitamins are a "thing" for Schizophrenia right now, apparently (the Internet told me so). For cognitive function and ADD/ADHD, Pycnogenol has been found somewhat helpful in small studies. I think it helps me, personally.

Try not to over-think it. Personally, I think its being on 2 neuroleptics. Not that its necessarily a bad thing, just...the major tranquilizers generate free radicals. If I recall correctly, that may be part of what drives TD and the metabolic problems...free radicals.

I seriously think the easiest approach would be to add in some high potency antioxidants and just stick with them for a couple of months. alpha lipoic acid, maybe? small studies show a benefit in olanzapine-induced weight gain. I would say green tea extract, but...liver damage is becoming more of an issue, so...

Pycnogenol? Grape seed extract? some companies make Pomegranate extract.

Orthomolecular experts swear by the bascis. vitamin c, 3-4x daily. b complex. vitamin E. carotenoids (I ditched my beta carotene for astaxanthin, btw...seems to help).

sorry this is happening. hope this helps.
