I was a little wild on it. But it was semi sedating and pills can be taken prn on top of it. I got movement sides from it though. Well i will add this too. At the time i was super inspired to work out a lot more and did.


#3

Haldol always made me feel nothing but bad.


#4

It helped my psychotic symptoms some, but it didn’t change my mood as far as I’m aware.


#5

Are you consdering asking your pdoc for haldol?


#6

Well…it depends on whether im psychotic off the haldol or not. Comparing non-delusional & off haldol and non-delusional on haldol…

Id say im most definitely more depressed and blunted, so less enjoyment. I suspect im also a bit more temperamental off haldol.

What do you mean with socially graceful?


#7

@TheCircleOfFifths yes, I feel that I need low-dose Haldol to finish off what remains of my symptoms, and to reduce my headache which is its off-label use.

@Marian, Social grace is the ability to function in a social setting. So, are there less intrusive thoughts and do you feel less “weird” around others with Haldol?


#8

Haldol increases my anxiety. I think it’s because of the akithisia though.


#9

I was flat the whole time I was on that drug
