A) Ondansetron 
B) Donepezil
C) Clonazepam
D) Vitamin B6

Answer: E

All atypical antipsychotics like risperidone, olanzapine, clozapine, quetiapine, aripiprazole and ziprasidone carries risk for causing TD. Though Quetiapine and clozapine are considered the lowest risk agents for precipitating TD, but still they should be used with caution.
