Hi, i just started haloperidal 2 weeks ago. I was on respiridone for 2 months and then they switched me to haloperidol overnight. I have not been able to sleep normally. Its like i have severe insomnia. Will it go away, or should i go back to respiridone (i had sleeplessness) with that one too. I cant take it anymore. I need sleep. Im becoming more suicidal. Im shaking too almost uncontrollably. What should i do? Will these side effects go away soon. If so, how soon?
Pmathew, you're not in a situation where you can wait for answers or wait to see if your symptoms will go away. Sleep deprivation alone can severely damage both your physical and mental health and if you're having suicidal thoughts you MUST, as masso has said, get medical attention now.
Please go to an ER and please let us know later how you are doing, okay?
Best regards and good luck to you. Wildcat
