Psychiatrist 's  Response

Tardive dyskinesias are caused by prolonged used of certain medication in psychiatry.
Usually we first try to help with this side effect by decreasing the medication that is causing this or adding some other medication. If this is not helping, then the medication may have to be stopped. This is a very disabling and distressing condition and hence is better to be tackled as soon as possible.

I am sorry but I know of no vitamin-mineral therapy that deals with this problem.
Hope any alternative medicine experts on this forum can help you in that.

But please do not keep searching for long. It may become irreversible if you do so.
