1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes...
This medication is actually disconitued.
.So not sure how you get it...Maybe out of us? Anyhow, often side effects from meds go away with stopping it, but extrapyramidal (eps) symptoms of akinesia (inability to initiate movement) and akathisia (inability to remain motionless) may not--permanent symptoms, though rare. So, yes to your question. Use only if u have to. Consult your doc. Good luck.
