I have just been taken off my Risperdone consta depot 50mg and put on a Haldol depot. I have only had a test dose so far but it is really knocking me out. I am still hearing my usual voices and having very bad thoughts that are not mine.

I had the haldol test dose last week so when should I have my next one.

Any thoughts please

Hi fazza,

I'm really sorry you haven't had a response to your post yet.

I think if you are being given a depot then it is your care team that decide when you have the next one.

I hope you have had some improvement since you posted.

Hopefully someone who has experience of this medication will see your post and respond soon.

Wazzup dawg? I was started on Aripiprazole depot (Abilify) while sectioned in hospital some months back, had the test dose and was still pretty much paranoid with delusions until I had the second 400mg dose exactly 4 weeks later which subdued my symptoms after a week and made me more stable you get homie?
