I am on Haloperidol, 5mg, three times a day. My doctor also gave me some Benzatropine to stop Extra Pyramidal Side Effects. It works, but it gives me shocking headaches and severe pain behind the eyes, and sometimes I need to take Oxycontin to get rid of all the pain. Someone on here mentioned a drug called “Sinemet”. Can this drug stop dystonias with causing so much pain? All replies will be appreciated.

The first step in treating dystonia is to determine as much as possible about the underlying cause. Treatment of dystonia must be highly customized to each individual.Establishing a satisfactory treatment plan requires open communication and patience on the part of both the affected individual and the physician. Make the effort to locate the most experienced physician you can, and someone with whom you feel comfortable.
Good luck always
