Haloperidol shots

I’m having Haloperidol shots every week. I want to go off of this medication. Unfortunately all psychiatrists I’ve been rejected my wish.

I think your doc wants you stable.
Why do you dislike it?

Are you saying you want to switch meds or come off meds completely?

Come off meds completely

It’s very rare for people to come off meds successfully. I don’t think I’ve met more than five people who have done this in the last twenty-five years. Many of us learn to function well on lower doses, but I stop functioning and relapse when I go to no dose. I have accepted that I am on medication for life.


Getting off the meds will trigger relapse and you’ll have to start all over again.
