Generic Haldol is an antipsychotic used in treatment of schizophrenia, acute psychotic states and delirium. It is also prescribed for Tourette’s syndrome to control tics and vocal utterances. Haloperidol, the drug’s active ingredient, has been FDA-approved since 1967. In form of injections, Generic Haldol can be administered to patients who have difficulties adhering to the oral medication regime or who have frequent relapses.Classification and Mechanism of Action
The active ingredient of Generic Haldol is haloperidol, a dopamine inverse agonist that belongs to the class of typical antipsychotics. Haloperidol interferes with the effects and actions of neurotransmitters, chemicals that serve for communication between the nerves in the brain. It blocks the nerve receptors for dopamine and serotonin type 2 and as a result the nerves are not activated by the neurotransmitters that the other nerves release.Looking after it
