Apparently it's carcinogenic and known side effects include "sudden death syndrome". Is this just a case of reading too much into things or should I generally be worried!

Obviously I’m not a doc but I have heard/read quite a lot about serious concerns. What taking it for ?

Personally I'm on Clozapine which is a "messy" drug in its own right; I just came across Pimozide in random browsing.

Only ever heard of it for really severe Tourette’s. It’s more last line than clozaril

Wow, really?? I was given this I think last year for my Tourette's syndrome (2 mg 2x/day I think?), my pdoc didn't seem to bat an eye when I asked her about it.

I got off of it when I read apparently the same things that @Simba Cub read... I tried fluphenazine next, which helped my Tourette's with almost no side effects (except marked blunted affect and depression at 1 mg 3x/day, not as bad as with haloperidol though...)

Sorry that was unclear. I meant rather than clozaril for things other than Tourette’s because it isn’t indicated for that in the US. Apparently it is in Europe though
