Will I get addicted to Haloperidal or have severe withdrawals from it.
As with many psych meds, you will become dependent on haloperidol if you take it for more than a few months and will need to taper off it. This is also true of Xanax and antidepressants.
I am not sure why I was put on it.
I assume to control the tics. It may work well or that, though there may be gentler meds which are as effective. IMHO, you need to discuss this further with the prescribing doctor. Ask why s/he has prescribed it, what the side-effects are, what your other options are, etc.
