    Has anyone had experiences with it to share?
    Does it change you? Your thoughts? Wishes? Mind? Feelings?
    How long does it take to work?
    Could it happen in a few hours? And last a few hours too?
    Just taken it this morning for the first time, wondering how it works...
    Please, any info is greatly appreciated.

    I took Haloperidol for a long time. Any antipsychotic should be given at least four to six weeks to work. Some people see results earlier, but that is how long it can take to take full effect. I was given it for Schizoaffective disorder, a combination of Schizophrenia and a mood disorder, and it helped the voices and visual and tactile hallucinations I had. It was quite effective.
