In a carcinogenicity study of haloperidol, dose-dependent increases in pituitary gland adenomas and mammary gland carcinomas were seen in female mice. There was a trend toward shorter half-lives in children compared to adults. In patients with first-episode schizophrenia, therapeutic response may be obtained at concentrations as low as 0. Careful and gradual dose up-titration in elderly patients is recommended. There is no specific antidote.

Haloperidol hakoperidol are not considered to make a significant contribution to its activity, although for the reduced metabolite of haloperidol, back-conversion to haloperidol cannot be fully ruled out. Analyses of seventeen placebo-controlled studies modal duration of 10 weekslargely in patients taking atypical antipsychotics, revealed a risk of death in treated patients of between 1.

The manifestations of haloperidol overdose are an exaggeration of the known pharmacological effects and adverse reactions.

Haldol 2mg/ml oral solution – Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC) – (eMC)

Treatment of tic disorders, including Tourette’s syndrome, in children and adolescents aged sydinge to 17 years with severe impairment after educational, psychological and other pharmacological treatments have failed.

Renal impairment The influence of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics of haloperidol has not been evaluated. This association may be stronger for haloperidol than for atypical antipsychotic medicinal products, is most pronounced in the first 30 days after the start of treatment, and persists for at dsoe 6 months.


The manifestations may be permanent in some patients. Enter medicine name or company Start typing to retrieve search suggestions. Cases of venous thromboembolism VTE have been reported with antipsychotics.

Haloperidol is metabolised by several routes see section 5. Venous thromboembolism Cases of venous thromboembolism VTE have been reported with antipsychotics. General disorders and administration site conditions.

The haloperidol dose may be adjusted according to the patient’s response. Aluminium screw-cap, tamper resistant, coated on the inner side with polyvinylchloride.

halperidol The safety and efficacy of HALDOL oral solution in children below the ages defined in the indications have not been established. Medicinal products that may decrease haloperidol plasma concentrations Coadministration of haloperidol with potent enzyme inducers of CYP3A4 may gradually decrease the plasma concentrations of haloperidol to such an extent that efficacy may be reduced.

Mechanism of action Haloperidol is an antipsychotic belonging to the butyrophenones group. Sodium valproate is known to inhibit glucuronidation, but does not affect haloperidol plasma concentrations.

Continue typing to refine. If patients miss a dose, it is recommended that they take the next dose as usual, and do not take a double dose.

During therapy, the need for ECG monitoring for QTc interval prolongation and for ventricular arrhythmias must be assessed in all patients.

In rare cases the following symptoms were reported during the concomitant use of lithium and haloperidol: The antidopaminergic effects of haloperidol on lactotropes in the anterior pituitary explain hyperprolactinaemia due to inhibition of dopamine-mediated tonic inhibition of prolactin secretion. Antipsychotic treatment must be withdrawn immediately and appropriate supportive therapy and careful monitoring instituted.

Weight increased Weight decreased. Increased mortality in elderly people with dementia Rare cases of sudden death have been reported in psychiatric patients receiving antipsychotics, including haloperidol see section 4.

However, hepatic impairment may have significant effects on the pharmacokinetics of haloperidol because it is extensively metabolised in the liver.

For excipients, see section 6. Results from small clinical studies suggest a lower clearance and a longer elimination half-life of haloperidol in elderly patients. As in adults, high inter-subject variability in plasma concentrations was observed. Maximal enzyme induction is generally seen in about 2 weeks and may then be sustained for the same period of time after the cessation of therapy with the medicinal product. Any unused medicinal product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
