If you think the Haldol helped you, the Dr would probaly keep you on it, only if you are diagnosed schizophrenia,that is a powerful drug.
Careful of the EPS on that old drug if you take it for a while.
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.
As far as ESP Symptoms go, make sure if you take Haldol, you always take a Drug like Cogentin with it. I've been on Haldol for about 4 years now, with no ESP Symptoms. I love my Haldol! I'm on it for Schizo-Affective Depressive Type.
