San Posted June 9, 2011 Share Posted June 9, 2011 Hello, I recently had a mild psychotic episode and I was taken off my atypical antipsychotic Geodon and put on Haldol (5mg) with Cogentin. My pdoc wants me to get injections of Piportil again and I'm thinking about it, it helped when I was on it years ago. I don't know why I have such an aversion to this, I'm not scared or particularly bothered by needles. I would be getting 25mg every other week. I forget if I had Cogentn for the side effects of Piportil.. It's probably safer (side effect wise) than Haldol.. I'd be on 3 medications (Lithium, Xanax, Piportil) as opposed to 5. I see my pdoc on the 20th. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
