Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using haloperidol. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you’ve used too much haloperidol. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.


If you think it is an emergency, call 999 or find your nearest A&E
If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Alternatively you can speak to one of our pharmacists or use the Now Patient app to make an appointment with your GP.

What should I do if I miss my dose?

There are occasions when people forget to take their medication at correct prescribed times. This may not only have an effect on potentially making the medication less effective but it may also inadvertently lead to taking doses too close together, thereby increasing the risks of side effects.

FDA approval haloperidol

Conditions treated by haloperidol

Haloperidol is a first-generation antipsychotic medication that is commonly used in the treatment of schizophrenia. It effectively manages symptoms such as agitation and behavior abnormalities in adults. Additionally, haloperidol is administered during acute psychotic episodes to address anxiety and control severe behavior problems. Furthermore, it has proven beneficial in managing Tourette’s syndrome by reducing patient motor and vocal tics.

In cases where individuals may not tolerate or prefer alternatives to haloperidol, it is crucial to explore other options such as psychotherapy or alternative medications tailored to their specific needs.

Mechanism of action

Haloperidol belongs to the class of drugs known as typical antipsychotics. It works by blocking dopamine receptors in the brain, thereby reducing the activity of dopamine and helping to control psychotic symptoms.

Warnings and precautions for haloperidol

  • Known hypersensitivity to haloperidol or other antipsychotic drugs
  • Haloperidol may cause orthostatic hypotension during the early phase of treatment (first week or two). Orthostatic hypotension causes patients to become dizzy upon arising from a lying or sitting position because of a drop in blood pressure
  • Severe CNS depression or coma
  • Parkinson’s disease and related disorders
  • Haloperidol is not approved for the treatment of elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis due to an increased risk of sudden death
  • Haloperidol may cause NMS (neuroleptic malignant syndrome) a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by fever, muscle stiffness, altered mental status, and autonomic dysfunction
  • Prolonged use of haloperidol may cause TD (tardive dyskinesia) a condition characterized by involuntary movements of the face and body
  • Haloperidol may cause QT prolongation on an electrocardiogram (ECG), which can lead to a serious irregular heartbeat
  • Having low potassium or magnesium levels and taking haloperidol may increase your risk of cardiovascular side effects
  • The effects of haloperidol in older adults aged 65 years and older may be much stronger
  • Haloperidol may cause the number of white blood cells to drop. Your doctor will need to check your white blood cell count often. If your blood cell counts become too low, you may have to stop taking haloperidol

Common side effects of haloperidol

Common side effects of haloperidol may include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Restlessness
  • Extrapyramidal symptoms (muscle stiffness, tremors, abnormal movements)

Serious side effects of haloperidol

Dystonia is a serious side effect with symptoms such as muscle stiffness, difficulty in speaking and swallowing and trouble breathing. Tardive dyskinesia is another potentially serious side effect that may arise from the use of haloperidol, causing involuntary movements such as repetitive facial grimacing or tongue protrusion. Irregular heartbeat is also listed as a serious side effect of this medication and should be monitored closely to prevent any cardiovascular complications.

Dosage of haloperidol

The dosage of haloperidol may vary depending on the condition being treated and individual patient factors. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug interactions 

  • Haloperidol should not be taken in combination with other central nervous system depressants, such as alcohol or sedatives. This can lead to increased sedation and respiratory depression, potentially resulting in a life-threatening condition
  • Caution should be exercised when using haloperidol along with anticholinergic medications. The combined use of these drugs may result in an increased risk of side effects such as dry mouth, blurred vision, urinary retention, and constipation
  • Haloperidol has the potential to prolong the QT interval on electrocardiograms. Therefore, it is important to avoid concomitant use of haloperidol with other medications that also have this effect. Combining these medications can increase the risk of developing serious cardiac arrhythmias
  • Don’t take haloperidol with dofetilide, quinidine, or dronedarone. The combination can increase the effects that both drugs may have on your heart. This can cause an irregular heart rate called torsades de pointes, which can be fatal
  • Do not take haloperidol with the bipolar drug lithium. It could lead to encephalopathic syndrome resulting in brain damage
  • Taking rifampin with haloperidol may lower the amount of haloperidol in your body. Your haloperidol dose may need to be changed or stopped when you start taking rifampin
  • Taking epinephrine with haloperidol may block the action of epinephrine and cause a condition called epinephrine reversal. Symptoms of epinephrine reversal may include a serious decrease in blood pressure, fast heart rate, and heart attack

Inform your healthcare provider about all the medications and supplements you are taking.

Use in pregnancy

Consult your healthcare provider before using haloperidol if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. The potential risks and benefits should be considered.

Use in breastfeeding

Haloperidol may pass into breast milk and could have adverse effects on the nursing infant. Consult your healthcare provider before using haloperidol while breastfeeding.
