A girl on the ward told me haloperidol means falling halo

She also said they fattened pigs up with chlorpromazine

Lol, I guess you have to take anything you hear on the psych ward with a pinch of salt! Either that or she’s on to something I’m not!

My last psychiatrist used to pronounce it as hay-loperidol… Like she was saying hey to someone called Loperidol :wink:

There are reasons people are on the ward. She might be just playing with you.

Im pretty sure the name doesnt mean falling halo… i couldnt find the break down and definition of its parts though… i did learn vets have and might still use it on animals… specifically birds who pull their feathers out…

The two halogen atoms in R 1625 would inspire it’s generic name - haloperidol… and there we go…
