I think you meant he has tardive dyskinesia? If so, I go with benztropine because it is the treatment for TD

benztropine,
Although bromocriptine is a dopamine agonist it may cause hallucinations and psychosis.It also causes marked dyskinesia.I therefore think that the most appropriate drug here would be a muscarinic receptor blocker which is benztropine. :idea:
