Haldol is an anti-psychotic medication generally prescribed for the long term care of antipsychotic therapy.

Caution should be used prescribing this medication. Haldol can cause psychotic behavior and hallucinations. Haldol should never be taken within 14 days of antidepressant usage. 

If you just reread the above paragraphs twice, you read correctly. It can and does cause the same psychotic reactions it is prescribed to treat.

The most common side effect experienced by patients in clinical trials with HALDOL were extrapyramidial reactions (EPS), a syndrome involving involuntary facial, arm, leg and body movements. In most cases, these reactions were usually mild to moderately severe and usually reversible. The side effects of HALDOL Decanoate 100 and HALDOL Decanoate 50 are those of oral HALDOL. The prolonged action of HALDOL Decanoate 100 and HALDOL Decanoate 50 should be considered in the management of side effects.
