    Haldol for Psychosis

    I was picked up from the street in a delirious state, I was in the intensive care unit and constantly talking to non-real people, that is, to the wall. Was brought to psychiatry with these symptoms the next day. The first week I received 30 mg Haldol daily, divided into 3 daily doses. I already have experience with neuroleptics, but none of them had such side effects as Haldol. I spent at least 16 hours a day in bed. When I was awake, I could not move my eyes, just my head. My entire motor skills were very static, a bit like being taken away from life. Then there were howling cramps that sometimes lasted for hours. Also, the diazepam, which I got additionally administered, could not relieve this. I also had pain because of stiff muscles. After the dose was reduced to half after 1 week and I also got Parkopan and magnesium in addition to the Haldol, the side effects were bearable. Finally, the stuff was spilled after 14 days.

    Haldol for Psychosis

    Hello, I got haloperidol decanoate due to psychosis, i. the depot form of Haldol. It is injected intramuscularly and then acts over a period of several weeks. Apart from the usual side effect of mental crippling caused by this drug (felt like a zombie), I had tremendous restlessness of the seat, hyperdyskinesia (involuntary movements), and myoclonus (twitching) associated with very high muscle stiffness. I advise everyone to have Haldol injected in its depot form as decanoate, because with any side effects you can not stop the preparation yes and must this to the bitter end, sometimes over a period of up to 3 months (in a syringe of 3 ml). The stuff has a half-life of 3 weeks, with the dopamine receptors occupied for up to 6 months. So if Haldol, then certainly not the depot preparation! In addition, modern atypical neuroleptics are significantly less side effects. Due to mental crippling, W H advises against long-term treatment with Haldol and recommends it only during an acute psychotic or schizophrenic phase until it has subsided, followed by a switch to a modern atypical neuroleptic. In addition, Haldol’s risk of tardive dyskinesia is far too great. (Drug-induced Parkinson’s symptom, which from today’s knowledge is hardly or not to be treated.) What brings you when a psychosis or a schizophrenic impulse subsides, but you have been permanently crippled for it ????????? Note to Editors: This report is not about drug addiction. Neuroleptics do not cause dependency in the classical sense, they have to be dosed down gradually, but this has other biochemical and medical reasons that would be too complex to be discussed at this point.
