Hi. I am 71 years old. When I was 20 I was put on 1.5mg of Serenace (Haloperidol) daily. I was on it for fifty years until it was found to cause tremors.
I was not advised on how long to taper down for, and probably did it too quickly half dose for two weeks, then off it completely.
Since then I have experienced the beneficial effects of increased dopamine. Unfortunately I am also experiencing withdrawal effects (I assume that's what they are) which are not going away even after being off the drug for six months.
The basic effects are "strange breathing", a feeling of "intoxication" and usually a headache.
I would appreciate if anyone can point me to a site where I can read up on what's happening to me. I have so far found nothing on the Internet which deals with anyone who has been on this medication for so long.
