My pdoc changed how i

Take my Haldol. Instead of taking all 15mg at night, I’m now supposed to take 10 mg at night and 5mg in the morning. I’m nervous about how tired I’ll be during the daytime but I’ll give it a go

I found my meds to be more effective when taken day and night vs night only.

Hope it goes ok for you! I also take haldol - 1,5mg in morning and 2,5 mg at night. I can’t say for higher doses what it will be like though.

Do you mean 15 or 1.5mg? I wasn’t sure with the comma what you meant

1,5mg. I take 4 mg daily at moment but may ask pdoc tomorrow to make it 5 again if I need it

Oh ok. You’re lucky such a small dose helps you. I always need really high doses. It’s frustrating

I take 400mg amisulpride along with it, so it’s not my only AP

Oh ok. That makes sense

How do you deal with the stiff muscles in the neck side effect on such a high dose?

I get spams in my thighs, akithisia and fatigue from Haldol. I take benztropine to reduce muscle spams and akithisia
