Haldol Shaking

Hey just want to preface this by saying I’m sorry I’m not on here more often. I really like you guys as a forum and should be on here more often but I’m prone to using forums for asking questions more than anything so I’ve got another question for you. I just started haldol and my leg is shaking a lot. Is this something that goes away pretty quickly? It says so on the internet but I figured you guys would know better. Thanks in advance lol rhyming over here

Sounds like drug-induced Parkinsonism. It can sometimes go away, other times it sticks around. I would ask your pdoc ASAP though.

I’m just starting haldol, they warned me in hospital it can cause movement disorders that can become permanent. I would definately get that checked out by a doctor asap


I have already sent her one. What were you taking before haldol

I think it could also be tremor.
If your leg just shake for a while.

That’s what it seems to be

When I was on Haldol, I took Procyclidine and diazepam, and that worked well.

But now I am dependent on the Diazepam even though I have been off Haldol for some years now

What did the haldol do for you

You mean how effective?

Very, but it nulled my brain in a very weird way

I wasn’t tired or a zombie or anything like that

They only like prescribing it in a hospital setting these days where I live.

Was only put on it in the community as they were running out of effective options

Ok yeah they’re putting it on me for long term. See how that goes……

Everyone is different. There are many forum members who take it

Good luck! I hope it works out for you :slight_smile:
