I guess long term use can result in severe depression (to the point of suicidal risk - severe with a capital "S"), dependence (as is true of most medications that effect the brain), the risk of Dyskinesia (it's an older anti-psychotic, so the risk is much more severe than the newer types), the risk of Neuroleptic malignant syndrome, an increased risk of breast cancer somewhere between 3 to 9% increased risk, (but the study was only in women, however is not official, and needs to be redone), heart problems (but that can be screened with a cardiograph), and as an overall, a very very long list of side effects...
I hope that this is of some help, and I wish the best luck to you!
