I'm on Haldol as it is the only antipsychotic that works for me. It's best to continue taking it for the rest of your life.

My wife is on Zyprexa and there is no improvement with it and the Doctors have recommended to change it to Haldol. Could you please let me know the side effects of Haldol ? I believe Haldol belongs to older generation of anti-psychotics compared to Zyprexa.

They should try clozapine before haldol

I was taken off haldol because I was still too psychotic, then they tried risperidone, Geodon and I am now on 2 antipsychotics: aripiprazole and quetiapine.

Are you still in hospital? Any sign of getting out?
All the best.

Are you taking the maximum dosage of olanzapine? I have found 20mg of olanzapine to be a life saver
