 2  Schizophrenia Extreme dizziness- especially after injections First time taking this med. it worked for my psychosis, but there are better drugs for me. Did not alleviate all symptoms. Still heard voices in tv. and anxiety around in world. Also took the generic brand haldol. I mean it works, it seemed this was the only drug the were giving us at the hospital. But every antipsychotic drug works for everyone jus have to find one that is best FOR YOU. M 27 30 days

 1  maliciously diagnosed paranoid Sz Drug-induced Parkinsonism, akathisia which was so bad I felt as if I was going to explode and attempted suicide as I could not stand it. Also twitching of neck and jaw, losing control of my tongue so speech became incomprehensible. I paced about 24/7, even eating while pacing about. I was so mentally and physically exhausted I thought I would drop dead. I stayed awake longer than the medical profession claim is possible. This was 23 years ago and I still relive the experience in nightmares. I was left with a life-long sleeping disorder. The side effects of this drug are horrendous. Some psychiatrists still use Haloperidol as first choice - these shrinks are normally also sadistic in other respecst. When I appealed to the Mental Health Review Tribunal the independent psychiatrist said I had the strangest psych records he had ever seen - they made absolutely no sense. He said "3 Consultant Psychiatrists have given you a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia and there is not a single word in the entire notes to even suggest such a diagnosis"! The level of psychiatric abuse in UK mental health is a national scandal. I would give this drug a rate of 0 if this choice was available. F 66 3 months

HALOPERIDOL  (HALOPERIDOL):  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)
