Areas of application of the active substance haloperidol

Haloperidol is used in acute and chronic psychosis associated with delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders and ego disorders. Furthermore, it is given in schizophrenia and mania (pathologically increased moods) both in the acute and chronic stage, as well as to prevent a relapse.

Haloperidol also helps in patients with severe restlessness and disorders associated with uncontrollable muscle twitching and movement (tics).

For the following application areas of Haloperidol , in-depth information is available:

  • psychosis
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pain (strong to very strong)

Mode of action of haloperidol

Haloperidol is one of the typical neuroleptics from the series of butyrophenones. It blocks the binding sites (receptors) for the neurotransmitter dopamine. This reduces the effect of dopamine as a carrier substance of stimuli and relieves the symptoms associated with psychosis.

Haloperidol continues to be anxiolytic and calming. The patients become more balanced and pathological restlessness is alleviated. It also leads to a reduction of delusions, ego and thought disorders as well as to a damping of emotional arousal and emotional tension. Morbidly increased moods and excessive drive increases are also regulated. In addition, haloperidol has a soothing effect.

    Haldol for Depression; Psychosis

    Haldol and Risperidon … Hellendinger! But well … They work differently for each … In Haldol I suffered from painful gaze spasms, extrapyramidal movement disorders, mild tremors in the arms and legs and after weaning, a nearly 5 months persisting insomnia, only by diazepane intravenously was suspended for just 4 hours. Risperdal had similar side effects … tremor and uneasiness or something … Both drugs made me helpless and desperate! Amitriptyline made little mention of it … The drive got better … However, it caused a mania and confusion … And Seroquel … Works okay, but even at a low dosage of 100-0-100 it has strange emotional deafness caused! Good that I do not take all these fucking things anymore …..

    Side effects: View cramps
