Prevention: High-dose Vitamins?

An informal 20-year study of more than 60,000 people treated with antipsychotic drugs plus high doses of vitamins found that only 34 of them (0.5%) developed TD. 38 This is far fewer than might be expected: the estimated rate of TD among people treated with traditional antipsychotic medications is 20 to 25%. 39 These results were based on reports from 80 psychiatrists who routinely used high-dose vitamins along with drugs to treat people with schizophrenia. Vitamins typically included vitamin C , niacin , vitamin B 6 , and vitamin E in varying dosages. However, because the study design was very informal, it is not possible to draw firm conclusions from its results.

It has some sucess. As a treatment, yes, it's not very effective. But at prevention? Plus other antioxidants and vitamins like vitamin C, melatonin, B3, B6?

You get those every day when you eat. Repeated studies have shown vitamins are good for one thing, it is to meet your basic nutritional needs. They are not effective as drugs or treatments, even in mega doses.
