Everyone I talked to at McLean and my own p-doc said higher dosages of the old APs are associated with more EPS problems. McLean put me on 36mg of perphenezine and my p-doc, when I got out, cut it down immediately to 12 mg. I had akathesia from the 36 mg and he was worried about other EPS effects. I now take haldol PRN to control suicidal urges (like every two or three weeks) and he doesn't want me to take more than 10mg, even infrequently because of the potential for EPS problems.
