Haldol is good for solving acute psychosis. They tried it on me at the hospital, and it became my full time drug for a year

I don’t know if it works immediately

It’s a quick fix for when your symptoms are getting the best of you. Taking a PRN can help give you control back, or relief at the very least. Important to have a good Plan B.

I’ve tried haldol but for some reason I got more psychotic maybe my dose was to low

What dose of Haldol were you on? I was taking 15mg/day. Now I’m on the monthly 100mg shot. I’m told I’m still psychotic. It’s very frustrating.

it lowers anxiety but doesnt help with psychosis
