Haldol shot

Who ist content with the Haldol shot?Do you get the shot every 3 or 4 weeks? Is it the only med?
I got Haldol shot long time ago, when I was working for Volkswagen in the office. It was not bad. Now I am on Olanzapin, but I’m thinking of changing to Haldol Shot.

I don’t like Haldol in any form. It sucks!

They gave me a haldol shot in the hospital and I was a walking drooling zombie. I went on Zyprexa when I got out of the hospital. It was 1000x better. I couldn’t tie my own shoes on haldol.

Are injections given on the bum? Does it hurt when sitting? Just wondering if I ever need injections.

Arm i think? Fifteen

you can choose in the bum or in the arm usually. But it doesn’t hurt to sit when you had the shot in the bum. I prefer in the bum myself.

Haldol is quite good and effective. I was on 50 mg every 4 weeks and changed every 3 weeks. I belie the standart dose is like 100mg shot once a month or 50mg shot every 2 weeks. It controls my symptoms quite good, dont have major side effects. Its also one of the least sedating ap
