Answer

Answer

Iwata et al, in a preliminary open-label trial designed to examine the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of zonisamide against TD in psychiatric patients with TD associated with antipsychotic treatment, found that zonisamide appeared to be safe and effective in this setting; larger well-designed trials will be required to assess these findings further.
