Orap and Insomnia

Clinical studies have shown that insomnia is a common Orap® (pimozide) side effect, occurring in 1 percent to 3 percent of people who are taking the medication. However, because it is difficult to predict whether you will develop a side effect with this medication, let your healthcare provider know if you develop anything that "just does not seem right" during treatment.
 
Other common side effects of Orap include sleepiness, weakness, and headaches. In most cases, reactions such as these are minor and easy to treat. However, serious side effects are also possible. Notify your healthcare provider immediately if you are taking Orap and experience unusual body movements, high fever, or confusion.
