Trilafon (perphenazine) for Psychosis: “This really helped my PTSD and major depressive symptoms. Much better than seroquel. Movement side effects when I got up to 12 mg a day. Lowered my dose back down to 8mg a day and the movement side effects went away.”

Trilafon (perphenazine) for Psychosis: “I was put on this drug, erroneously I believe as I was only suffering a major depressive episode, in 1974. From that time until I went through menopause in 1997 (23 years) I had the side effect galactorrhea. I was never pregnant or post breastfeeding during that time and took no other medication with that side effect.”

Trilafon (perphenazine) for Psychosis: “I had a very bad experience with perphenazine. I ended up with severe joint pain, difficulty breathing, chest pain, weird spinning sensation in my face on the right side of my nostril, on my forehead and on the right side of my temporal area. I had difficulty urinating and horrible insomnia. It has been well over 6 months since taking up to 12 mg for only a few ( about 2–4 days) and I am still having problems. I started on only 4 mg back in Dec 2013 and took the same dosage up to Mar 2014. I stopped because I could barely urinate. Then, I started have weird movement as stated above in my face, but not as bad as the movement when I took 12mg. The, I was told that I needed to start back on this drug for the movement to disappear.”

Trilafon (perphenazine) for Psychosis: “Not bad! I’m taking other meds as well. I recommend everyone gives it a chance before judging to harshly on this site.”

For Psychosis: “It was an OK experience for me! I don’t think I hit the full effects of it just yet…but Paxil @40mg seems to work much better for me. Tired of trying meds that don’t make me too sleepy as well. Also, my appetite was low so I lost a few extra pounds. If I don’t see results in another 4 weeks, I’ll ask my doctor to put me on Rexulti.”
