I think that you'll find much more information if you use the newer terminology for this syndrome. After around 1990, the literature refers to it as supersensitivity psychosis (SSP).

The treatment choices usually are anti-epileptic drugs, as far as I can surmise. http://www.namiscc.org/newsletters/April02/SupersensitivityPsychosis.htm

Another option is atypical antipsychotic therapy, e.g. risperidone (Risperdal).
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=7531355

It is probably permanent, in that it arises from long term treatment with conventional antipsychotics (e.g. haloperidol/Haldol). That said, it also appears to be treatable, by switching to newer medication.

I was unable to find a concensus treatment. You're probably going to have to do a little experimentation with other drugs.

Best of luck with everything,
Lar
