Haldol (haloperidol) is a typical antipsychotic. Though indicated for the treatment of mania in bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, it is a fan favorite among health care professionals to deal with agitated or delirious patients.[1][2] One particular advantage of Haldol (haloperidol) is the numerous routes of delivery available.


Methods of Delivery


  1. Intramuscular - Into the muscle.
  2. Intravenous - Through an IV.
  3. Blowdart - The Haldol Blowdart is one of the Seven Wonders of the Medical World.[3]
  4. Creamy Spread - This takes advantage of the popularity of turkey sandwiches.[4]
