I have a friend who has a mild case of TD who is now taking 
Parkinson's-disease-type drugs to mitigate it. However her doctor wants 
to take her off those drugs fairly soon. Are there alternative treatments 
for TD? What about melatonin? I understand that a *cause* of TD is damage 
to the pineal gland which inhibits its ability to produce melatonin. If 
melatonin is used here, what should we watch out for? Please e-mail me 
with your answers. Thank you in advance.
