Is haloperidol banned almost worldwide?

Im on haloperidol and heard aome guys talking at a hospital that this medication is banned in most countries. Is this true?

Never heard of that. Many users here are on it.

I don’t know. I wouldn’t believe what most people say even here.

There was a shortage last year, but I think it got resolved. Maybe this is what they are referencing.


I don’t think so

I hope not. I take250 mg every month

That’s about right haldol is a staple go to.

I didn’t hate it just did nothing.

It was never banned. There have been production shortages some places.
Some doctors try to encourage newer medicines for patients.

It is the worst tolerated drug according to a lancet study [1] [2]


One of the most efficient drugs out there. My pdoc says that they try to stop its production, and instead pdocs will prescribe more expensive aps

As far as im still aware - its still widely used in the uk. But most people now are on the newer drugs, unless it doesnt work for them.

The day Lundbeck stoppes the production of Clopixol I’m heading for a disaster.

Typically, we like to leave inactive threads alone and just start a new thread instead. This is different than how some forums are run, but we do it this way because it frequently upsets users to have old topics revived when they are no longer relevant. It can also be frustrating to the person who revived the thread when they don’t get a reply, because the original poster is no longer active or no longer finds the topic relevant. Feel free to start a new thread on this topic.
