Haliperidol

I was in the ED of my local hospital just the other day and the ER doc gave IV Benedryl and Phenergan at first(which didn't work) the he suggested that I give the Haldol a try. Well folks i'm here to tell you that it was the worse mistake I could have allowed! I felt groggy as it was and the with the Haldol on top of that I was in a very "Detatched" state of mind. I have been a 15yr sufferer of migraines, due to a TBI and I am on a pain contract for my chronic pain . I have an accute seizure disorder to go along with everything else! I told the DR. I didn't know enough about the drug, but he was very coinvincing as to the effectiveness of it. It wasn't. A very scary experience from my point of view. I only knew it was used as an anti-Psych drug. I have yet to find any valid info on the effectiveness in treatment of "Cluster combination" migraines. I felt as if he was just trying to "Treat and street" me as fast as he could.

Haloperidol use may lead to the development of symptoms that resemble Parkinson's disease, but that are not caused by Parkinson's. These symptoms may include a taut or mask-like expression on the face, drooling, tremors, pill-rolling motions in the hands, cogwheel rigidity (abnormal rigidity in muscles, characterized by jerky movements when the muscle is passively stretched), and a shuffling gait. Taking the anti-Parkinson drugs benztropine mesylate or trihexyphenidyl hydrochloride along with haloperidol help to control these symptoms. Medication to control Parkinsonian-like symptoms may have to be continued after haloperidol is stopped. This is due to different rates of elimination of these drugs from the body.

This year she started getting violent. I have spent a lot of time researching behaviors of autistic children, trying to figure out what the heck is going on with my little girl. Through my research I think I have learned enough about what motivates Rosie to lash out and lately we have tried different techniques that seem to be working. Control is a HUGE issue with her. When you are autistic you have no control. You are always led around by a guardian and told when and how to do everything. Once a child hits adolescence and the hormones start raging, that child often craves a little independence and being so controlled can be too much to bare. In many ways autistic children are just like everyone else and the need for independence and control is one of those things we all have in common.
