Pdoc put me on haldol


#1

The pdoc put me on 2 mg its been working great no side effects yet hopefully never and hopefully i am able to lose some weight on it


#2

With meds, you never know. It's such an individual thing I did not do well on Haldol but do do well with ziprexa which a lot of people don't like at all. So, whatever floats your boat.


#3

Is that the only med your on, just 2mg of haldol ???


#4

My doctor mentioned Haldol to me. I'm not sure when the change from Risperdal to Haldol will happen, but I'm glad to see you like it so far.


#5

I've been on Haldol for about a year and a half and latuda for about 4 years. They both work well for me except the Haldol causes leg twitches. But i'm on 25 mgs a day compared to your 2 mgs a day.


#6

no i also take latuda 120 mg a day


#7

i was on risperdal and it didnt do much fort me and made me gain almost 100 pounds in a 1.5 years


#8

I'm happy to hear he changed your medicine! I know that's what you wanted.


#9

#10

Good luck on Haldol @austinsdad - it's a very effective med.


#11

thank you @Wave. Its been pretty effective so far


#12

How do you feel on it? Do you feel better? I am thinking of trying it too


#13

@TomCat oh ya i feel alot better my voices are almost gone and i am not seeing demons that much anymore i can go shopping at walmart and i dont think everyone can read my mind. I love the medicine no side effects either


#14

When I was on the Haldol shot I was pretty miserable, but Haldol did do some good things for me. At one point I was on 40 mg a day. That was really bad.


#15

@crimby I am sorry haldol didnt work out for you. Are you on good meds for you now?


#16

Right now I am on Geodon and Seroquel and I'm doing fine. These med's have been like a God send for me.


#17

Good luck @austinsdad


#18

#20
