Side-effects is right, haldol is notorious for creating extrapyramidal symptoms (stiff neck, uncontrolable jerking, swollen tongue, drooling). You can always ask your doctor about a medication. He may not want to put you on the Haldol and may suggest something else, like Zyprexa or Zyprexa Zydis. A lot of the patients with schizophrenia at my hospital take it and it seems to work well for most of them. Anyway, just talk with your doctor about Haldol if that's what you think works for you and see if he will prescribe it. Good luck and I hope this helped.
