Huntington Chorea Treatments


There is no cure for HD. Treatment aims to help control symptoms.


Drugs can help control abnormal movements and emotional symptoms of HD. These include:

  • Sedatives or minor tranquilizers, such as benzodiazepines
  • Major tranquilizers, like haloperidol or phenothiazine
  • Antidepressants

Physical Fitness

Staying physically active helps people with HD to function better and longer. Often physical and occupational therapy may be of some benefit.
