 3  schizophrenia I was put on haldol because I was having a mental breakdown some say. I couldn't walk, talk , sleep, eat or even bathe. People say it was a demonic spirit in me because I thought I was hearing voices and seeing things . My eyes were wide and I was scared for my life . Other say I may have been drugged but I don't remember any. I don't go out this just happened out of no where . I was in the mental facility because I said I wanted to kill myself . I was in the mental facility for about 3 months!!!! I was transferred so many times. I remember one time I was acting out and they gave me a shot I don't remember what it was but it calm me down . After I got on out they recommended haldol . I was giving the 50 ML dose via injection every month. This medication made me feel like I couldn't walk, I have delayed speech, had a hard time remembering things just felt like I was "slow" . I asked for a lower dosage and they declined my request. So I suddenly stop going. It's been 5 months since my last injection and I feel okay I guess . I'm back to normal but I still have days where I feel said I'm going to relapse. Sometimes I feel like I need the medication then again I don't want to be on it cause it makes me feel out of my body . ( can't do daily functions) Dont stop taking the medication suddenly talk to your doctor your . I would somewhat recommend if you stay at home and don't work . If your the type to work and around the public eye I wouldn't recommend. This medication makes up me feel like I want to isolate myself from the world, F 27 1 years

 1  for apparent schiophrenia All the side effects, couldn't walk y'all straight and my throat and you get swelled up on me, Was sent to a psych ward against my will, was on Prozac but then stop immediately, they gave me seroquel, risperdal, then haldol for a month, could hardly talk straight or walk straight and I still can'barely walk., think how I used to, I can't even sing anymore or think of ideas for my art. I never wanted antipsychotics, they should not be used for insomnia and any psychiatrist that gives it to a patient should be fired F 20 30 days

 1  I don't know why they gave this tongue and throat swelled up, had trouble walking I do not know why they gave this to me in the hospital. They gave me a shot. I had a very bad reaction. I had to stay in the hospital for maybe a week from physical incapacitation from this medication. I felt really uncomfortable on this medication. Luckily the effects did wear off after about maybe 3 or 4 days and they gave me a physical therapist in the mean time. The physical therapist was very nice and I recovered. F 32 1 times

 1  First I read every comment and ever First I read every comment and everyone wishes they never taking it. I am also warrning you guys from this drug. It is so bad that a year ago I was injected with it in the E.R and still suffering from it I also read that it can have a permanent damage on ur brain which I feel that's what happened to me. Basically it makes u slow. So I told my doctor about it and she straight up said they ruined ur life let me guess u don't want to sleep with ur wife eather right and I was shocked because she's was right. And then she told me the real truth is that it is used as chemical restraint which is like putting you in handcuffs in mental hospital. And by the way it was my first time in the mental hospital. And it was because I argued with my bro and he called the cops on me and I guess he didn't want me in jail so he lied to them that I was crazy so they let me go so instead they took me in the hospital. And just because I was bothering them to let me leave the hospital after three weeks inside the jail hospital. They wanted me to do nothing so they injected me with holdel and I never felt the same since. And one thing about me is that I am a collage graduate and worked at a pharmacy for five years. And a successful business owner. Ever since that hospital I lost everything and basically I can't find anything that I can enjoy. Please do not let them give you this or anyone you know. It's been a year and it's still negatively affecting my thinking. M 34 21 days

 1   Son was injected three times daily for 3 days. Also injected with Ativan and was injected with versed the first day. When I saw him late the 3rd day, he was dying and they were letting him die. He was seated, rigid, arched back and neck, eyes rolled back in head, beet red skin, profusely sweating, jaw clenched, foaming at mouth, every time he struggled to breath I heard gurgling noises, veins burst in one eye as I was looking at him filling his eye with blood. Agonizing groaning. Had to argue with staff to get help for him. Finally was assessed by ICU nurse who rushed him to CV-ICU. Documentation: arrived in respiratory failure, acute kidney injury with rhabdomyolysis, dehydration. Vital organs shutting down. Had to work on him 48 minutes to stop death. He now has permanent damage from this reckless forced overdose by hospital staff at St Anthony's Hospital in St Petersburg, FL. They should be criminally charged with attempted murder. I had told staff in ER to never administrator Haldol because he could not tolerate the pill form. Yet they continued to inject him, as if they wanted him dead. Poison. Should not be legal. My son is damaged for life. The drug company and hospital have no accountability. How can this be allowed in our country? They let him suffer all day before I saw him and had to argue for help.

 1  Schizophrenia, PTSD, anxiety Depression, confusion, sedated, drowsiness, sleeping I have been taking this medication for at least 3 years. It is one of the worst medications I have been prescribed. A psychiatrist prescribed me the highest dose possible for twice a day right away! The psychiatrist moved to a different state sometime after this and I was forced to go to a different clinic due to the clinic being short staffed or talk with my primary dr, no follow up or anything from the psychiatrist who prescribed me the Haldol. I was confused, unable to think clearly, tired out of my control and falling asleep at work everyday!!, sleeping a lot and unable to wake up, slow movements and delayed response. After I told my doctor about it, he lowered the doses 2 different times to once a day and it is twice a day now at a lower dose. After I adjusted to this medication, any joy and excited feelings has been stripped away from me because of taking this medication! Boredom & depression is the only thing you will have in life after taking this medication! It does not help, awful! F 30 0 days

 2  Panic attack extrapyramidal reaction (my head moved to the right alone and my neck muscles were extremely tense), difficulty sleeping, sleeping a few hours, strange nightmares, hundreds of random thoughts at the same time, mental confusion when trying to sleep, euphoria I received an injection of this medicine to relieve panic attacks. I started having these adverse symptoms about 2 hours after application. The medicine did not work at all. According to the research I did, this drug has adverse reactions in about 30% of patients. How is it still being sold? It should be banned immediately. Note: I went to the doctor and he prescribed an antidote, this antidote was applied to me. All the symptoms ended in about 2 hours, with the exception of the tension in the neck muscles, which took about 2 or 3 days to pass. M 32 1 days

 1  Anti Nausea I’ve had horrible side affects from this medication since taking it 6 days ago in the hospital for nausea. It’s made me right leg really jittery and messed up. And has caused some serious jitters and feeling of not being able to sit still. Don’t ever let anyone ever give you this drug. It will destroy your life along with other anti-psychotics. F 23 1 days
 1  Agitation My mom was given one injection at night because she was agitated. She had mild dementia. She became so lethargic and unresponsive the entire next day. When she finally became more alert she was extremely confused. She couldn’t eat or drink. She died 4 days later This drug should NEVER be given to the elderly. It is a dangerous drug and should be taken off the market. Doctors who prescribe this drug are idiots. F 83 1 days

 1   My son was injected with Haldol at a mental facility. He suffers depression. They held him down and injected him. Now he is in critical care until with his tongue swelled almost touching the roof of his mouth and almost cut off his breathing.He told me he was having a seizure before the swelling.

 1  A "mental illness" Horrible experience with my jaws locking up constantly. I had to keep going to the bathroom because I kept foaming out of the mouth. This was given to me at County Mental Health, San Diego, 3853 Rosecrans St. I kept going to staff and they had to give me something to counteract this. My jaws kept locking up & clenching on me which ruined my teeth. NOT RECOMMENDED AND HALDOL SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET. Apparently, I got this drug for a type of mental illness? With what I went through I wouldn't give my worst enemy Haldol. M 34 3 days

HALDOL  (HALOPERIDOL LACTATE):  Haloperidol is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (e.g., schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorders). This medicine helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It can also help prevent suicide in people who are likely to harm themselves. It also reduces aggression and the desire to hurt others. It can decrease negative thoughts and hallucinations. Haloperidol can also be used to treat uncontrolled movements and outbursts of words/sounds related to Tourette's syndrome. Haloperidol is also used for severe behavior problems in hyperactive children when other treatments or medications have not worked. Haloperidol is a psychiatric medication (antipsychotic-type) that works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain (neurotransmitters).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
