Was my father given haldol?

My father is a home hospice patient. Twice his Dr prescribed haldol. I never gave it to him. Each time I informed the Dr that he has Parkinson's and should not take haldol. Now he is in a inpatient hospice unit and I suspect he was given haldol based on his Parkinson's symptoms getting dramatically worse over a 24 hr period. My question is: how long after taking haldol can it be detected in the blood? ## It has been found in the brains of deceased persons as long as three weeks after they last had any.

With elderly, it's very dangerous for those who have dementia with Lewy bodies, whic...

haldon

for alhemzmers spelled wrong ## For the past few months, the assisted living center my Aunt was staying in in NY was treating her with Haldon. Last week we moved her to an assisted living center in Atlanta so she would be closer to family. The new assisted living center thinks Haldon is too strong and wants to switch her to another drug. Does anybody have any experience with a Haldon substitute? If so, was it successful and what was it? Many thanks! ## Are you referring to the medication Haldol? If so, then yes, there are other options available, please speak to her doctors. ## Respridone is pretty close to haldon as my doctor tells me I was on resperidone for about 4 months with great results but my iinsurance ran out and can no longer afford the drug so my doctor put me on haldon goin...

round blue pill with MYLAN 335 - Haldol Decanoate?

A friend takes this medication & he says it is Haldol; however, I cannot locate it in any of the pill identifiers. I have checked several sites and none of them show this particular pill. I noticed that Haldol Decanoate is no longer available but I am unable to locate any images of this particular medication. I was wondering if maybe that is what he is taking. Could you please identify this pill? ## The brand that was sold under that name is no longer available, however, this is a generic for it and it, as well as several other brand names are still available. To be precise this tablet contains 20mgs of Haloperidol, which is an antipsychotic. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with?
