I'm sorry- didn't mean to frighten you. 2 mg of perphenazine usually doesn't cause problems from what I have heard.

I took this drug while in my 20s in an attempt at self-medicating for sub-psychotic symptoms which are part of my schizoid/ schizotypal personality disorder. The truth is that I was prescribed perphenazine for a short while in order to withdraw from benzos which I became addicted to. My mistake was that I never went back to the pdoc and continued to take the drug without supervision- taking on the average 2 mg but also 1 and 4 mg occasionally and playing with it a lot- stopping and starting as I saw fit (something which turned out to increase the risk for TD).

I developed TD, severe depression and other symptoms which have subsided with the help of SSRIs. I am now 36 and still suffer from AP-induced bruxism and occasional flare-ups of tongue movements and similar symptoms.

I think it is important that you share your concerns with your doctor. My mistake was (and still is) trying to be my own pdoc and experimenting with psychiatric drugs for reasons other than that which they are prescribed for.

Do you still suffer from psychotic symptoms? If it is necessary for you to take an AP, is it possible for you to take an atypical? Perhaps you can ask your doctor.

Best wishes,
