So I went to my pdoc appt today and my pdoc was concerned with my lack of progress with the loxapine 50mg, so she put me on Haldol 5mg 2x a day = 10mg. I see her next week for an increase. I didn't have a good experience with haldol in the past (terrible akathisia) however, she gave me some cogentin so hopefully this helps my chronic psychosis.

I have taken haloperidol for short periods of time up to 15mg each day when manic.  No longer than a month or so a time. It made me feel incredibly calm. I cannot comment on long term use from a personal point of view.

However, my aunt who has schizophrenia has been getting the depot injections and takes cogentin for the past 3 decades and is ok
