What is Haldol?
I am currently on Xanax for anxiety, does haldol have the same side effects? slurd speech, drunk feeling? or is a entierly diffrent type of drug? Asked by Luz Piurkowski 2 years ago.

Haldol (haloperidol) is a major antipsychotic that should only be taken as a last resort due to its side effects. I have seen young adults walking around like automatons with their mouths open and tongues hanging out because they were prescribed Haldol for comparatively minor symptoms and developed a condition called tardive dyskinesia. Other major side effects are sedation, headache, confusion, vertigo and seizures. It can also cause blurred vision, rapid heartbeat, and an assortment of central nervous system irregularities. Answered by Lorenza Pailet 2 years ago.

A VERY DANGEROUS DRUG The first thing I said about Andrea Yates, was, I wonder if she was on Haladol In the wrong hands, it makes you halucinate, and I firmly believe a LARGE AMOUNT of crime can be linked to this drug What makes me the expert? Nothing, but I HAVE BEEN GIVEN HALDOL, had an alergic reaction, and HALUCINATED LIKE I HAVE NEVER halucinated before. All I can say is, have a doctor close byl Answered by Calista Looby 2 years ago.

Xanax is a benzodiazapam tranquilizer. Haldol is an antipsychotic drug and is much more potent. A five cc intramuscular dose will calm an agitated psychotic. Answered by Emory Laurenti 2 years ago.

Haldol is an extremely strong antipsychotic. It can be used in the treatment of bipolar disorder as well as other thought disorders. In the psychiatric ward I was in, they used it as a sedative when one of the patients was getting out of hand. It has a strong effect on the nervous system and allows the user to relax. Answered by Tracy Labarr 2 years ago.

Haldol is different. It is used to treat more acute forms of mental illness. Answered by Olga Vanruler 2 years ago.

Is haldol a good medication?
My doctors put me on Haldol for anxiety because nothing else was working. There having me take 1 mg a day. Is that too much? Can I experience side effects at this dose? Some answers would be great, thank you. Asked by Robert Pelosi 2 years ago.

Haldol is what the CIA and old soviet union use to 'lobotomize' political dissidents. Actually the precise combination is Prozac/Ativan/Haldol. It is not safe for human consumption. Answered by Jessica Pantaleo 2 years ago.

hopefully it will decrease your anxiety good luck Answered by Juliette Bory 2 years ago.


Who knows anything about Haldol?
By the way, I'm BP1. Asked by Eleanor Rowntree 2 years ago.

The doc put me on haldol, and took me off my anti-depressant, because I can't sleep but maybe 3 hours a night,I've become extremely violent, and I hear voices.He said it would help with both.I just started haldol last night.I'm wondering if this is supposed to kick in quickly, or will it take it a few weeks.I didn't sleep hardly at all last night.Maybe some one with experience with this drug can ell me something. Answered by Myrtle Searby 2 years ago.

Haldol is the brand name for the generic drug haloperidol. It is one of the oldest antipsychotics in use. I'm rather surprised that you were being given an antidepressant when you have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. They usually make BP worse, not better. Anti-seizure medications work better as mood stabilizers for BP. I have known people with bipolar who also became psychotic. It will take some time for the drug to reach a therapeutic level but not nearly as long as an antidepressant takes. And he would have started you on the lowest dosage he felt would be effective, given your symptoms. It is extremely important to take your meds at the same time every day. It's how your body gets the best "miles per gallon" on the least amount of medication. And if you are needing to take an antipsychotic such as haldol for a long period of time it is important that you take the lowest dosage possible to treat your symptoms to avoid developing tardive dyskinesia. If your tongue starts to feel strange, like it doesn't fit in your mouth or you find yourself pushing on your teeth with it contact your doctor immediately. These are early signs of T.D. and he will want to change your meds. Answered by Lacie Borsari 2 years ago.

I have been on Haldol and it did not help me sleep, Chlorpromazine works much better. Answered by Julissa Arvay 2 years ago.


Can you over medicatte on haldol?
Asked by Shizuko Foucher 2 years ago.

UM YES!!!! Most certainly. I am a psychiatric RN, and the doctors in my hospital don't even USE haldol anymore because it has SOOOOO many CNS side effects. And with haldol, typically they are irreversable. You need to talk to you medical professional about finding an alternate drug to Haldol. Prolonged use of this drug is proven to have dehabilitating effects. Dystonia and Akethisia just to name a few. If you have any questions, I can be of more assistance at crjm51012@yahoo.com Answered by Byron Shirai 2 years ago.

you can be over medicated on any drug. only your psychiarist or doctor can answer this. f you have a concern you should get a second opinion. haldol has a lot of side effects and you should be careful abou hat. also about mixing it with alcohol and street drugs. Answered by Jasmine Sallmen 2 years ago.

It is a big YES!!! It is a old generation anti psychotic, andover medication with it may cause a series of symptoms known as extra pyramidal effects which can be dangerous if not treated Answered by Dong Hazzard 2 years ago.

GOOD REASONS WHY PSYCHIATRY MUST BE ABOLISHED 1. Because psychiatrists frequently cause harm, permanent disabilities, death - death of the body-mind-spirit. 2. Because psychiatrists frequently violate the Hippocratic Oath which orders all physicians "First Do No Harm." 3. Because psychiatrists patronize and disempower people, especially their patients. 4. Because psychiatry is not a medical science. 5. Because psychiatry is quackery, a pseudo-science which lacks independent diagnostic tests, testable hypotheses, and cures for "schizophrenia" and all other types of alleged "mental illness" or "mental disorder". 6. Because psychiatrists can not accurately and reliably predict dangerousness, violence, or any other type of human behaviour, yet make such claims as "expert witnesses", and with the media promote the "dangerous mental patient" myth/stereotype. 7. Because psychiatrists have caused a worldwide epidemic of brain damage by promoting and prescribing brain-disabling treatments such as the neuroleptics, antidepressants, electroconvulsive brainwashing (electroshock), and psychosurgery (lobotomy). 8. Because psychiatrists manufacture hundreds of "mental disorders" classified in its bible called "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" (a modern witch-hunting manual); such "mental disorders" and "symptoms" are in fact negative, class-and-culturally-biased moral judgments for dissident ways of coping with personal problems and alternative ways of perceiving, interpreting or being in the world. 9. Because psychiatrists, blinded by their medical model bias, fraudulently pathologize and label people's serious life or existential crises as "symptoms" of "mental illness" or "mental disorder" such as "schizophrenia","bipolar affective disorder", and "personality disorder". 10. Because psychiatrists compound this fraud by falsely claiming, without scientific proof, that these "mental disorders" are caused by a "biochemical imbalance" in the brain, genetic factors or "genetic predispositions", despite the fact that there are no genetic factors in "mental illness". 11. Because psychiatrists frequently misinform their patients, families and the public by claiming that brain-disabling procedures such as the neurotoxins (e.g.,"antipsychotic medication" and "antidepressasnts"), electroconvulsive brainwashing (electroconvulsive therapy/"ECT"), psychosurgery (lobotomy) and other behaviour modification-mind control procedures are "safe, effective and lifesaving". The exact opposite is tragically true. 12. Because psychiatrists routinely deceive or lie to patients, prisoners, their families, and the public. 13. Because psychiatrists routinely and willfully violate the medical-ethical principle of "informed consent" by misinforming or not informing their patients about the numerous toxic, disabling and frequently permanent effects of the neuroleptics such as memory loss, tardive dyskinesia, tardive psychosis, parkinsonism, dementia (all signs of brain damage), and death. 14. Because psychiatrists routinely threaten, intimidate or coerce many patients - particularly women, children, the elderly, and prisoners - into consenting to health-threatening/brain-damaging "treatment" such as the antidepressants, neuroleptics, electroconvulsive brainwashing, and hi-risk experiments. 15. Because psychiatrists frequently fail to fully inform psychiatric inmates and prisoners about existing safe and humane, non-medical alternatives in the community such as survivor-controlled crisis centres, drop-ins, self-help or advocacy groups, diet, massage, wholistic medicine, affordable supportive housing, and jobs. 16. Because psychiatrists are sexist in frequently stereotyping women in crisis as "hysterical" or "over-emotional", blaming women whenever they voice real complaints and assertively express their feelings and emotions, prescribing massive doses of tranquilizers and antidrepressants to disproportionately large numbers of women, and in sexually assaulting women in their offices and institutions. 17. Because psychiatrists, particularly white male psychiatrists, are homophobic - the American Psychiatric Association (APA) once labelled homosexuality as a "mental illness" or "mental disorder" - and have used forced electroshock on lesbians, trying to coerce them into adopting a heterosexual life style. 18. Because psychiatrists are ageist in prescribing tranquilizers, antidepressants ("medication") and electroconvulsive brainwashing for disproportionately large numbers of elderly people - a form of elder abuse. 19. Because psychiatrists are racist in disproportionately incarcerating and drugging people of African descent, aboringal people, other people of colour and labelling them "psychotic" or "schizophrenic". 20. Because psychiatrists routinely violate people's civil rights, human rights and constitutional rights such as imprisoning innocent people without court trial or public hearing ("involuntary commitment"), and subjecting them to cruel and unusual punishments or tortures such as forced drugging, electroconvulsive brainwashing, psychosurgery, solitary confinement, "chemical restraints", and 4-point or 5-point restraints. 21. Because psychiatrists masterminded the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people including disabled children, the elderly and psychiatric patients during The Holocaust in Nazi Germany, and "selected" hundreds of thousands of concentration camp prisoners for death ("T-4 euthanasia" program) - historical facts still missing in psychiatric textbooks and histories. 22. Because psychiatrists have willingly participated in and administered mind-control experiments in the United States and Canada since the early 1950s - its chief targets have been poor patients, women, dissidents and prisoners. 23. Because psychiatry, particularly institutional-biological psychiatry, is based on the 3 Fs: Fear, Fraud,and Force. 24. Because psychiatry is a form of social control or punishment - not treatment. 25. Because psychiatry, particularly institutional-biological psychiatry, is fascist - a direct threat to democracy, human rights and life. Answered by Genevie Silkenson 2 years ago.


Anyone had a good experince or bad experince with haldol?
just wanted to know your experinces with haloperidol and why everyone hates it my experince was ok THANKS Asked by Chiquita Schnitker 2 years ago.

Haldol (haloperidol) is an older typical anti-psychotic. I have taken it for a short time. I developed tardive diskinesia from typical anti-psychotics including haldol. I am now on an atypical anti-psychotic (risperidone) and it is much better.Look up "Haldol" in a Yahoo! web search. Wikipedia has a good summary and in it look under "adverse effects" for why people don't like it. Answered by Emmy Bolejack 2 years ago.

Hi I took several neuroleptics in the past 12 years and am currently under haldol. I like it because I can think a little bit before I act, and because I can read well. I take a 50 mg shot every 3 weeks, probably am gonna go on 100 next time. It s ok, neuroleptics are **** but its ok. Answered by Idell Schmalzried 2 years ago.

my daughter and that i've got been on one as quickly as and it have been given caught a pair of foot above the floor, it had a tumbler back and you could desire to be certain the floor however the problem does not flow and the doors does not open. it ultimately went each and each of how down after 5 or so minutes.

How do you taper an antipsychotic like Haldol?
My doctor won't tell me how to get off of Haldol and its really frustrating because I hate this drug! I take 1mg per day. How do I do it comfortably? I also take Ritalin and Ativan... Asked by Dominga Miscoe 2 years ago.

Haldol is a first generation anti- psychotic, I have always stopped 2nd generation antipsychotics and I never tapered off. They say it is dangerous to stop suddenly. So first take 1/2 the dose for say 2 weeks, then 1/4 for 3 weeks, then 1/8 for 1 week and that's it. There can be many devastating side effects from antipsychotics, and if you can control yourself perhaps you don't need the haldol. By the way they came out with 2nd generation antipsychotics because the 1st gen. were so dangerous. I stopped geodon this past november and only just now am getting it out of my system, of course I was on the highest dose for years. Answered by Robin Benyo 2 years ago.

taper off? drop haldol without a second thought, and don't look back..haldol does nothing for you...within two months, maybe more, you should start feeling better.. there is no tapering off with that garbage, but it does take time for it to flush completely out of your system... Haloperidol is a classic example of an anti depressant that absolutely induces psychosis, simply by taking it..the cure IS the poison. Answered by Ginger Courtney 2 years ago.


How do you taper an antipsychotic like Haldol?
My doctor won't tell me how to get off of Haldol and its really frustrating because I hate this drug! I take 1mg per day. How do I do it comfortably? I also take Ritalin and Ativan... Asked by George Bencomo 2 years ago.

1 mg of Haldol is a very small dose and if your doctor wants you to take it then you really need to get a good answer from him as to why you need it. If he has good reason to want you on it then it is probably best. You can ask about alternatives to Haldol. And if you say "I'm stopping Haldol" he can not force you to take it unless you are an imminent threat to your self or others. And any ethical doctor will tell you what to do. But a second opinion is my best advice. If two doctors both agree on your treatment then it is good to stay on it. But just so you know Haldol is not addictive nor does it cause dependency and (especially at 1 mg) there should not be major problems from stopping it. Ativan and Ritalin are far more likely to be uncomfortable if you stop. Those drugs must never be stopped without instructions from a doctor. Answered by Doris Stenner 2 years ago.

If your doctor won't tell you how to taper off, it's because he wants you to stay on it. You should not take yourself off it. If you are unhappy with the regimen your doctor is prescribing, find a new doctor and let him or her taper you off; do NOT do it on your own. By the way, 1 mg a day of Haldol is a TINY dose, unlikely to have much effect on you at all. Answered by Viki Damico 2 years ago.


I was given a single haldol injection for a panic attack, how long will I be experiencing side effects?
I checked myself into the ER because of a severe panic attack compounded by lack of sleep and some delusional thinking. I continued having a panic attack and delusions in the ER so they gave me a single Haldol injection. I experienced ataxia, sweating, increased sex drive, etc. Does anyone know the different types... Asked by Adina Vegher 2 years ago.

I checked myself into the ER because of a severe panic attack compounded by lack of sleep and some delusional thinking. I continued having a panic attack and delusions in the ER so they gave me a single Haldol injection. I experienced ataxia, sweating, increased sex drive, etc. Does anyone know the different types of Haldol injections? Answered by Samatha Gugliuzza 2 years ago.

Haldol blocks your dopamine, the chemical in the brain responsible for movement and pleasure. Don't check yourself into the ER, they will just inject you with Haldol, the cheapest and nastiest antipsychotic drug. If it was an intramuscular injection, it can last for up to a month, if it was an intravenous injection, then it shouldn't last for more than 3-6 hours. I'm guessing you were given an intramuscular injection, they usually don't give you an intravenous injection, unless you're a violent psychotic person on crystal meth or with schizophrenia. Google this drug, it's nasty. Weight gain, diabetes, an irreversible movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia, are all side effects. The mental health system uses drugs like Haldol to shut people down, for the sake of society, not for the sake of the patient. They could have easily given you an intravenous injection of a benzodiazepine, you definitely didn't need to be shut down with a powerful antipsychotic drug. Well, you've learn something new for next time. Answered by Winter Ring 2 years ago.

I had one a few weeks back when I was pulling an all-nighter (an oddly recurring theme in my life right now). The first one I loved the line "red RED" genius. I'm hoping that line between the two is a false statement... Very fast paced and reflective of the disorganized thoughts that accompany a panic attack. Answered by Val Saddat 2 years ago.


Anyone else take Haldol?
It is an old anti psychotic drug for paranoia that you take as needed. Well whenever I take it before bed. I usually take 2, I am tired the entire next day like it is giving me some sort of medication hangover. Is that common for this drug? Asked by Maia Gere 2 years ago.

Haldol is not an 'as needed' drug, it is a blood level medication that must be taken regularly. It is no better, and no worse, than most all other antipsychotics. If you're only taking it 'as needed' you're better off not taking it at all. Your body isn't adjusting to it and you're getting the side effects without the intended benefits. Talk with the person who is prescribing it to you about all this. Answered by Billie Rakestraw 2 years ago.

A loved one took it. Ask your doctor to change meds. Haldol is not the only med that can help. Not sure about the hangover feeling, but I do know that Haldol destroys your liver. Answered by Val Bivins 2 years ago.

Haldol is an extremely strong antipsychotic. It can be used in the treatment of bipolar disorder as well as other thought disorders. In the psychiatric ward I was in, they used it as a sedative when one of the patients was getting out of hand. It has a strong effect on the nervous system and allows the user to relax.

Who knows anything about Haldol?
By the way, I'm BP1. Asked by Allegra Zellers 2 years ago.

The doc put me on haldol, and took me off my anti-depressant, because I can't sleep but maybe 3 hours a night,I've become extremely violent, and I hear voices.He said it would help with both.I just started haldol last night.I'm wondering if this is supposed to kick in quickly, or will it take it a few weeks.I didn't sleep hardly at all last night.Maybe some one with experience with this drug can ell me something. Answered by Toshiko Dantoni 2 years ago.

Haldol is the brand name for the generic drug haloperidol. It is one of the oldest antipsychotics in use. I'm rather surprised that you were being given an antidepressant when you have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. They usually make BP worse, not better. Anti-seizure medications work better as mood stabilizers for BP. I have known people with bipolar who also became psychotic. It will take some time for the drug to reach a therapeutic level but not nearly as long as an antidepressant takes. And he would have started you on the lowest dosage he felt would be effective, given your symptoms. It is extremely important to take your meds at the same time every day. It's how your body gets the best "miles per gallon" on the least amount of medication. And if you are needing to take an antipsychotic such as haldol for a long period of time it is important that you take the lowest dosage possible to treat your symptoms to avoid developing tardive dyskinesia. If your tongue starts to feel strange, like it doesn't fit in your mouth or you find yourself pushing on your teeth with it contact your doctor immediately. These are early signs of T.D. and he will want to change your meds. Answered by Ana Muir 2 years ago.

Can you over medicatte on haldol?
Asked by Shonta Schuetz 2 years ago.

UM YES!!!! Most certainly. I am a psychiatric RN, and the doctors in my hospital don't even USE haldol anymore because it has SOOOOO many CNS side effects. And with haldol, typically they are irreversable. You need to talk to you medical professional about finding an alternate drug to Haldol. Prolonged use of this drug is proven to have dehabilitating effects. Dystonia and Akethisia just to name a few.

GOOD REASONS WHY PSYCHIATRY MUST BE ABOLISHED 1. Because psychiatrists frequently cause harm, permanent disabilities, death - death of the body-mind-spirit. 2. Because psychiatrists frequently violate the Hippocratic Oath which orders all physicians "First Do No Harm." 3. Because psychiatrists patronize and disempower people, especially their patients. 4. Because psychiatry is not a medical science. 5. Because psychiatry is quackery, a pseudo-science which lacks independent diagnostic tests, testable hypotheses, and cures for "schizophrenia" and all other types of alleged "mental illness" or "mental disorder". 6. Because psychiatrists can not accurately and reliably predict dangerousness, violence, or any other type of human behaviour, yet make such claims as "expert witnesses", and with the media promote the "dangerous mental patient" myth/stereotype. 7. Because psychiatrists have caused a worldwide epidemic of brain damage by promoting and prescribing brain-disabling treatments such as the neuroleptics, antidepressants, electroconvulsive brainwashing (electroshock), and psychosurgery (lobotomy). 8. Because psychiatrists manufacture hundreds of "mental disorders" classified in its bible called "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" (a modern witch-hunting manual); such "mental disorders" and "symptoms" are in fact negative, class-and-culturally-biased moral judgments for dissident ways of coping with personal problems and alternative ways of perceiving, interpreting or being in the world. 9. Because psychiatrists, blinded by their medical model bias, fraudulently pathologize and label people's serious life or existential crises as "symptoms" of "mental illness" or "mental disorder" such as "schizophrenia","bipolar affective disorder", and "personality disorder". 10. Because psychiatrists compound this fraud by falsely claiming, without scientific proof, that these "mental disorders" are caused by a "biochemical imbalance" in the brain, genetic factors or "genetic predispositions", despite the fact that there are no genetic factors in "mental illness". 11. Because psychiatrists frequently misinform their patients, families and the public by claiming that brain-disabling procedures such as the neurotoxins (e.g.,"antipsychotic medication" and "antidepressasnts"), electroconvulsive brainwashing (electroconvulsive therapy/"ECT"), psychosurgery (lobotomy) and other behaviour modification-mind control procedures are "safe, effective and lifesaving". The exact opposite is tragically true. 12. Because psychiatrists routinely deceive or lie to patients, prisoners, their families, and the public. 13. Because psychiatrists routinely and willfully violate the medical-ethical principle of "informed consent" by misinforming or not informing their patients about the numerous toxic, disabling and frequently permanent effects of the neuroleptics such as memory loss, tardive dyskinesia, tardive psychosis, parkinsonism, dementia (all signs of brain damage), and death. 14. Because psychiatrists routinely threaten, intimidate or coerce many patients - particularly women, children, the elderly, and prisoners - into consenting to health-threatening/brain-damaging "treatment" such as the antidepressants, neuroleptics, electroconvulsive brainwashing, and hi-risk experiments. 15. Because psychiatrists frequently fail to fully inform psychiatric inmates and prisoners about existing safe and humane, non-medical alternatives in the community such as survivor-controlled crisis centres, drop-ins, self-help or advocacy groups, diet, massage, wholistic medicine, affordable supportive housing, and jobs. 16. Because psychiatrists are sexist in frequently stereotyping women in crisis as "hysterical" or "over-emotional", blaming women whenever they voice real complaints and assertively express their feelings and emotions, prescribing massive doses of tranquilizers and antidrepressants to disproportionately large numbers of women, and in sexually assaulting women in their offices and institutions. 17. Because psychiatrists, particularly white male psychiatrists, are homophobic - the American Psychiatric Association (APA) once labelled homosexuality as a "mental illness" or "mental disorder" - and have used forced electroshock on lesbians, trying to coerce them into adopting a heterosexual life style. 18. Because psychiatrists are ageist in prescribing tranquilizers, antidepressants ("medication") and electroconvulsive brainwashing for disproportionately large numbers of elderly people - a form of elder abuse. 19. Because psychiatrists are racist in disproportionately incarcerating and drugging people of African descent, aboringal people, other people of colour and labelling them "psychotic" or "schizophrenic". 20. Because psychiatrists routinely violate people's civil rights, human rights and constitutional rights such as imprisoning innocent people without court trial or public hearing ("involuntary commitment"), and subjecting them to cruel and unusual punishments or tortures such as forced drugging, electroconvulsive brainwashing, psychosurgery, solitary confinement, "chemical restraints", and 4-point or 5-point restraints. 21. Because psychiatrists masterminded the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people including disabled children, the elderly and psychiatric patients during The Holocaust in Nazi Germany, and "selected" hundreds of thousands of concentration camp prisoners for death ("T-4 euthanasia" program) - historical facts still missing in psychiatric textbooks and histories. 22. Because psychiatrists have willingly participated in and administered mind-control experiments in the United States and Canada since the early 1950s - its chief targets have been poor patients, women, dissidents and prisoners. 23. Because psychiatry, particularly institutional-biological psychiatry, is based on the 3 Fs: Fear, Fraud,and Force. 24. Because psychiatry is a form of social control or punishment - not treatment. 25. Because psychiatry, particularly institutional-biological psychiatry, is fascist - a direct threat to democracy, human rights and life. Answered by Jon Tosti 2 years ago.

Haldol (haloperidol) is an older typical anti-psychotic. I have taken it for a short time. I developed tardive diskinesia from typical anti-psychotics including haldol. I am now on an atypical anti-psychotic (risperidone) and it is much better.Look up "Haldol" in a Yahoo! web search.

How do you taper an antipsychotic like Haldol?
My doctor won't tell me how to get off of Haldol and its really frustrating because I hate this drug! I take 1mg per day. How do I do it comfortably? I also take Ritalin and Ativan... Asked by Otto Depietro 2 years ago.

Haldol is a first generation anti- psychotic, I have always stopped 2nd generation antipsychotics and I never tapered off. They say it is dangerous to stop suddenly. So first take 1/2 the dose for say 2 weeks, then 1/4 for 3 weeks, then 1/8 for 1 week and that's it. There can be many devastating side effects from antipsychotics, and if you can control yourself perhaps you don't need the haldol. By the way they came out with 2nd generation antipsychotics because the 1st gen. were so dangerous. I stopped geodon this past november and only just now am getting it out of my system, of course I was on the highest dose for years. Answered by Maddie Hopke 2 years ago.

taper off? drop haldol without a second thought, and don't look back..haldol does nothing for you...within two months, maybe more, you should start feeling better.. there is no tapering off with that garbage, but it does take time for it to flush completely out of your system...

How do you taper an antipsychotic like Haldol?
My doctor won't tell me how to get off of Haldol and its really frustrating because I hate this drug! I take 1mg per day. How do I do it comfortably? I also take Ritalin and Ativan... Asked by Theo Gassoway 2 years ago.

1 mg of Haldol is a very small dose and if your doctor wants you to take it then you really need to get a good answer from him as to why you need it. If he has good reason to want you on it then it is probably best. You can ask about alternatives to Haldol. And if you say "I'm stopping Haldol" he can not force you to take it unless you are an imminent threat to your self or others. And any ethical doctor will tell you what to do. But a second opinion is my best advice. If two doctors both agree on your treatment then it is good to stay on it. But just so you know Haldol is not addictive nor does it cause dependency and (especially at 1 mg) there should not be major problems from stopping it. Ativan and Ritalin are far more likely to be uncomfortable if you stop. Those drugs must never be stopped without instructions from a doctor. Answered by Kali Zehring 2 years ago.

If your doctor won't tell you how to taper off, it's because he wants you to stay on it. You should not take yourself off it. If you are unhappy with the regimen your doctor is prescribing, find a new doctor and let him or her taper you off; do NOT do it on your own. By the way, 1 mg a day of Haldol is a TINY dose, unlikely to have much effect on you at all. Answered by My Keltt 2 years ago.

I continued having a panic attack and delusions in the ER so they gave me a single Haldol injection. I experienced ataxia, sweating, increased sex drive, etc. Does anyone know the different types of Haldol injections? Answered by Patricia Swailes 2 years ago.

Haldol blocks your dopamine, the chemical in the brain responsible for movement and pleasure. Don't check yourself into the ER, they will just inject you with Haldol, the cheapest and nastiest antipsychotic drug. If it was an intramuscular injection, it can last for up to a month, if it was an intravenous injection, then it shouldn't last for more than 3-6 hours. I'm guessing you were given an intramuscular injection, they usually don't give you an intravenous injection, unless you're a violent psychotic person on crystal meth or with schizophrenia. Google this drug, it's nasty. Weight gain, diabetes, an irreversible movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia, are all side effects. The mental health system uses drugs like Haldol to shut people down, for the sake of society, not for the sake of the patient. They could have easily given you an intravenous injection of a benzodiazepine, you definitely didn't need to be shut down with a powerful antipsychotic drug. Well, you've learn something new for next time. Answered by Angelika Selca 2 years ago.

I had one a few weeks back when I was pulling an all-nighter (an oddly recurring theme in my life right now). The first one I loved the line "red RED" genius.

Anyone else take Haldol?
It is an old anti psychotic drug for paranoia that you take as needed. Well whenever I take it before bed. I usually take 2, I am tired the entire next day like it is giving me some sort of medication hangover. Is that common for this drug? Asked by Jasmin Hamler 2 years ago.

Haldol is not an 'as needed' drug, it is a blood level medication that must be taken regularly. It is no better, and no worse, than most all other antipsychotics. If you're only taking it 'as needed' you're better off not taking it at all. Your body isn't adjusting to it and you're getting the side effects without the intended benefits. Talk with the person who is prescribing it to you about all this. Answered by Lavon Nan 2 years ago.

I checked myself into the ER because of a severe panic attack compounded by lack of sleep and some delusional thinking. I continued having a panic attack and delusions in the ER so they gave me a single Haldol injection. I experienced ataxia, sweating, increased sex drive, etc. Does anyone know the different types of Haldol injections? Answered by Carrie Hirshberg 2 years ago.

Haldol blocks your dopamine, the chemical in the brain responsible for movement and pleasure. Don't check yourself into the ER, they will just inject you with Haldol, the cheapest and nastiest antipsychotic drug. If it was an intramuscular injection, it can last for up to a month, if it was an intravenous injection, then it shouldn't last for more than 3-6 hours. I'm guessing you were given an intramuscular injection, they usually don't give you an intravenous injection, unless you're a violent psychotic person on crystal meth or with schizophrenia. Google this drug, it's nasty. Weight gain, diabetes, an irreversible movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia, are all side effects. The mental health system uses drugs like Haldol to shut people down, for the sake of society, not for the sake of the patient. They could have easily given you an intravenous injection of a benzodiazepine, you definitely didn't need to be shut down with a powerful antipsychotic drug. Well, you've learn something new for next time. Answered by Huong Handley 2 years ago.

Anyone else take Haldol?
It is an old anti psychotic drug for paranoia that you take as needed. Well whenever I take it before bed. I usually take 2, I am tired the entire next day like it is giving me some sort of medication hangover. Is that common for this drug? Asked by Edyth Vitek 2 years ago.

Haldol is not an 'as needed' drug, it is a blood level medication that must be taken regularly. It is no better, and no worse, than most all other antipsychotics. If you're only taking it 'as needed' you're better off not taking it at all. Your body isn't adjusting to it and you're getting the side effects without the intended benefits. Talk with the person who is prescribing it to you about all this. Answered by Cary Bellido 2 years ago.

A loved one took it. Ask your doctor to change meds. Haldol is not the only med that can help. Not sure about the hangover feeling, but I do know that Haldol destroys your liver. Answered by Tessie Manzur 2 years ago.


What is Haldol?
I am currently on Xanax for anxiety, does haldol have the same side effects? slurd speech, drunk feeling? or is a entierly diffrent type of drug? Asked by Dee Petitjean 2 years ago.

Haldol (haloperidol) is a major antipsychotic that should only be taken as a last resort due to its side effects. I have seen young adults walking around like automatons with their mouths open and tongues hanging out because they were prescribed Haldol for comparatively minor symptoms and developed a condition called tardive dyskinesia. Other major side effects are sedation, headache, confusion, vertigo and seizures. It can also cause blurred vision, rapid heartbeat, and an assortment of central nervous system irregularities. Answered by Hilde Worf 2 years ago.

A VERY DANGEROUS DRUG The first thing I said about Andrea Yates, was, I wonder if she was on Haladol In the wrong hands, it makes you halucinate, and I firmly believe a LARGE AMOUNT of crime can be linked to this drug What makes me the expert? Nothing, but I HAVE BEEN GIVEN HALDOL, had an alergic reaction, and HALUCINATED LIKE I HAVE NEVER halucinated before. All I can say is, have a doctor close byl Answered by Fallon Kuhtz 2 years ago.

Xanax is a benzodiazapam tranquilizer. Haldol is an antipsychotic drug and is much more potent. A five cc intramuscular dose will calm an agitated psychotic. Answered by Elliott Krall 2 years ago.

Haldol is an extremely strong antipsychotic. It can be used in the treatment of bipolar disorder as well as other thought disorders. In the psychiatric ward I was in, they used it as a sedative when one of the patients was getting out of hand. It has a strong effect on the nervous system and allows the user to relax.

Haldol is different. It is used to treat more acute forms of mental illness. Answered by Gino Adams 2 years ago.

Who knows anything about Haldol?
By the way, I'm BP1. Asked by Arnulfo Froid 2 years ago.

The doc put me on haldol, and took me off my anti-depressant, because I can't sleep but maybe 3 hours a night,I've become extremely violent, and I hear voices.He said it would help with both.I just started haldol last night.I'm wondering if this is supposed to kick in quickly, or will it take it a few weeks.I didn't sleep hardly at all last night.Maybe some one with experience with this drug can ell me something. Answered by Silvia Marushia 2 years ago.

Haldol is the brand name for the generic drug haloperidol. It is one of the oldest antipsychotics in use. I'm rather surprised that you were being given an antidepressant when you have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. They usually make BP worse, not better. Anti-seizure medications work better as mood stabilizers for BP. I have known people with bipolar who also became psychotic. It will take some time for the drug to reach a therapeutic level but not nearly as long as an antidepressant takes. And he would have started you on the lowest dosage he felt would be effective, given your symptoms. It is extremely important to take your meds at the same time every day. It's how your body gets the best "miles per gallon" on the least amount of medication. And if you are needing to take an antipsychotic such as haldol for a long period of time it is important that you take the lowest dosage possible to treat your symptoms to avoid developing tardive dyskinesia. If your tongue starts to feel strange, like it doesn't fit in your mouth or you find yourself pushing on your teeth with it contact your doctor immediately. These are early signs of T.D. and he will want to change your meds. Answered by Dave Sprygada 2 years ago.

Can you over medicatte on haldol?
Asked by Elyse Merrihew 2 years ago.

UM YES!!!! Most certainly. I am a psychiatric RN, and the doctors in my hospital don't even USE haldol anymore because it has SOOOOO many CNS side effects. And with haldol, typically they are irreversable. You need to talk to you medical professional about finding an alternate drug to Haldol. Prolonged use of this drug is proven to have dehabilitating effects. Dystonia and Akethisia just to name a few. If you have any questions, I can be of more assistance at crjm51012@yahoo.com Answered by Leigh Rastelli 2 years ago.

you can be over medicated on any drug. only your psychiarist or doctor can answer this. f you have a concern you should get a second opinion. haldol has a lot of side effects and you should be careful abou hat. also about mixing it with alcohol and street drugs. Answered by Serina Schwab 2 years ago.

It is a big YES!!! It is a old generation anti psychotic, andover medication with it may cause a series of symptoms known as extra pyramidal effects which can be dangerous if not treated Answered by Bethanie Andujo 2 years ago.

GOOD REASONS WHY PSYCHIATRY MUST BE ABOLISHED 1. Because psychiatrists frequently cause harm, permanent disabilities, death - death of the body-mind-spirit. 2. Because psychiatrists frequently violate the Hippocratic Oath which orders all physicians "First Do No Harm." 3. Because psychiatrists patronize and disempower people, especially their patients. 4. Because psychiatry is not a medical science. 5. Because psychiatry is quackery, a pseudo-science which lacks independent diagnostic tests, testable hypotheses, and cures for "schizophrenia" and all other types of alleged "mental illness" or "mental disorder". 6. Because psychiatrists can not accurately and reliably predict dangerousness, violence, or any other type of human behaviour, yet make such claims as "expert witnesses", and with the media promote the "dangerous mental patient" myth/stereotype. 7. Because psychiatrists have caused a worldwide epidemic of brain damage by promoting and prescribing brain-disabling treatments such as the neuroleptics, antidepressants, electroconvulsive brainwashing (electroshock), and psychosurgery (lobotomy). 8. Because psychiatrists manufacture hundreds of "mental disorders" classified in its bible called "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" (a modern witch-hunting manual); such "mental disorders" and "symptoms" are in fact negative, class-and-culturally-biased moral judgments for dissident ways of coping with personal problems and alternative ways of perceiving, interpreting or being in the world. 9. Because psychiatrists, blinded by their medical model bias, fraudulently pathologize and label people's serious life or existential crises as "symptoms" of "mental illness" or "mental disorder" such as "schizophrenia","bipolar affective disorder", and "personality disorder". 10. Because psychiatrists compound this fraud by falsely claiming, without scientific proof, that these "mental disorders" are caused by a "biochemical imbalance" in the brain, genetic factors or "genetic predispositions", despite the fact that there are no genetic factors in "mental illness". 11. Because psychiatrists frequently misinform their patients, families and the public by claiming that brain-disabling procedures such as the neurotoxins (e.g.,"antipsychotic medication" and "antidepressasnts"), electroconvulsive brainwashing (electroconvulsive therapy/"ECT"), psychosurgery (lobotomy) and other behaviour modification-mind control procedures are "safe, effective and lifesaving". The exact opposite is tragically true. 12. Because psychiatrists routinely deceive or lie to patients, prisoners, their families, and the public. 13. Because psychiatrists routinely and willfully violate the medical-ethical principle of "informed consent" by misinforming or not informing their patients about the numerous toxic, disabling and frequently permanent effects of the neuroleptics such as memory loss, tardive dyskinesia, tardive psychosis, parkinsonism, dementia (all signs of brain damage), and death. 14. Because psychiatrists routinely threaten, intimidate or coerce many patients - particularly women, children, the elderly, and prisoners - into consenting to health-threatening/brain-damaging "treatment" such as the antidepressants, neuroleptics, electroconvulsive brainwashing, and hi-risk experiments. 15. Because psychiatrists frequently fail to fully inform psychiatric inmates and prisoners about existing safe and humane, non-medical alternatives in the community such as survivor-controlled crisis centres, drop-ins, self-help or advocacy groups, diet, massage, wholistic medicine, affordable supportive housing, and jobs. 16. Because psychiatrists are sexist in frequently stereotyping women in crisis as "hysterical" or "over-emotional", blaming women whenever they voice real complaints and assertively express their feelings and emotions, prescribing massive doses of tranquilizers and antidrepressants to disproportionately large numbers of women, and in sexually assaulting women in their offices and institutions. 17. Because psychiatrists, particularly white male psychiatrists, are homophobic - the American Psychiatric Association (APA) once labelled homosexuality as a "mental illness" or "mental disorder" - and have used forced electroshock on lesbians, trying to coerce them into adopting a heterosexual life style. 18. Because psychiatrists are ageist in prescribing tranquilizers, antidepressants ("medication") and electroconvulsive brainwashing for disproportionately large numbers of elderly people - a form of elder abuse. 19. Because psychiatrists are racist in disproportionately incarcerating and drugging people of African descent, aboringal people, other people of colour and labelling them "psychotic" or "schizophrenic". 20. Because psychiatrists routinely violate people's civil rights, human rights and constitutional rights such as imprisoning innocent people without court trial or public hearing ("involuntary commitment"), and subjecting them to cruel and unusual punishments or tortures such as forced drugging, electroconvulsive brainwashing, psychosurgery, solitary confinement, "chemical restraints", and 4-point or 5-point restraints. 21. Because psychiatrists masterminded the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people including disabled children, the elderly and psychiatric patients during The Holocaust in Nazi Germany, and "selected" hundreds of thousands of concentration camp prisoners for death ("T-4 euthanasia" program) - historical facts still missing in psychiatric textbooks and histories. 22. Because psychiatrists have willingly participated in and administered mind-control experiments in the United States and Canada since the early 1950s - its chief targets have been poor patients, women, dissidents and prisoners. 23. Because psychiatry, particularly institutional-biological psychiatry, is based on the 3 Fs: Fear, Fraud,and Force. 24. Because psychiatry is a form of social control or punishment - not treatment. 25. Because psychiatry, particularly institutional-biological psychiatry, is fascist - a direct threat to democracy, human rights and life. Answered by Jacqualine Norbeck 2 years ago.


Anyone had a good experince or bad experince with haldol?
just wanted to know your experinces with haloperidol and why everyone hates it my experince was ok THANKS Asked by Wai Render 2 years ago.

Haldol (haloperidol) is an older typical anti-psychotic. I have taken it for a short time. I developed tardive diskinesia from typical anti-psychotics including haldol. I am now on an atypical anti-psychotic (risperidone) and it is much better.Look up "Haldol" in a Yahoo! web search. Wikipedia has a good summary and in it look under "adverse effects" for why people don't like it. Answered by Britney Puccia 2 years ago.

Hi I took several neuroleptics in the past 12 years and am currently under haldol. I like it because I can think a little bit before I act, and because I can read well. I take a 50 mg shot every 3 weeks, probably am gonna go on 100 next time. It s ok, neuroleptics are **** but its ok. Answered by Teri Mckechnie 2 years ago.

How do you taper an antipsychotic like Haldol?
My doctor won't tell me how to get off of Haldol and its really frustrating because I hate this drug! I take 1mg per day. How do I do it comfortably? I also take Ritalin and Ativan... Asked by Ashlyn Cutno 2 years ago.

Haldol is a first generation anti- psychotic, I have always stopped 2nd generation antipsychotics and I never tapered off. They say it is dangerous to stop suddenly. So first take 1/2 the dose for say 2 weeks, then 1/4 for 3 weeks, then 1/8 for 1 week and that's it. There can be many devastating side effects from antipsychotics, and if you can control yourself perhaps you don't need the haldol. By the way they came out with 2nd generation antipsychotics because the 1st gen. were so dangerous. I stopped geodon this past november and only just now am getting it out of my system, of course I was on the highest dose for years. Answered by Gilma Seekford 2 years ago.

taper off? drop haldol without a second thought, and don't look back..haldol does nothing for you...within two months, maybe more, you should start feeling better.. there is no tapering off with that garbage, but it does take time for it to flush completely out of your system... Haloperidol is a classic example of an anti depressant that absolutely induces psychosis, simply by taking it..the cure IS the poison. Answered by Otto Guyer 2 years ago.

1 mg of Haldol is a very small dose and if your doctor wants you to take it then you really need to get a good answer from him as to why you need it. If he has good reason to want you on it then it is probably best. You can ask about alternatives to Haldol. And if you say "I'm stopping Haldol" he can not force you to take it unless you are an imminent threat to your self or others. And any ethical doctor will tell you what to do. But a second opinion is my best advice. If two doctors both agree on your treatment then it is good to stay on it. But just so you know Haldol is not addictive nor does it cause dependency and (especially at 1 mg) there should not be major problems from stopping it. Ativan and Ritalin are far more likely to be uncomfortable if you stop. Those drugs must never be stopped without instructions from a doctor. Answered by Vallie Ficht 2 years ago.

If your doctor won't tell you how to taper off, it's because he wants you to stay on it. You should not take yourself off it. If you are unhappy with the regimen your doctor is prescribing, find a new doctor and let him or her taper you off; do NOT do it on your own. By the way, 1 mg a day of Haldol is a TINY dose, unlikely to have much effect on you at all. Answered by Kristel Picot 2 years ago.
