How To Use
  • Take with food or milk if stomach upset occurs, unless directed otherwise by your doctor.
  • The liquid concentrate form must be measured carefully and diluted with 4 ounces or more of water, milk, juice, or carbonated beverage or it can be mixed into applesauce or pudding.

  • It may take up to two weeks before the full effects of Haloperidol are noted.

Side Effects

  • Use caution performing tasks that require alertness.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
