HaldolJohnson & Johnson added new warnings to its schizophrenia drug, Haldol, about the potential risk of death and of dangerous heart conditions observed in some patients. The FDA said new labeling on the drug will note that ailments, including QT prolongation, a disorder of the heart's electrical system that can lead to a life-threatening condition, have been observed in post-marketing studies. The drug is also sold generically under the name haloperidol. Several other drugs for schizophrenia, including a much newer J&J drug including Invega, have warnings about the risk of the serious cardiac effect. The FDA, in a posting on its web site, said the new labeling comes after a number of case reports of sudden death and QT prolongation in patients treated with the drug.

Haldol ruined my life and the ability to move always feeling like i am going to have a heart attack or stroke not even able to move from bed.
Cause of death toxic level of Haldol taken along with other medications. All prescribed by same doctors and filled at same pharmacy. Taken at prescribed dosages.
I lost my daughter - the doctors wouldn't listen when she said she didn't want Haldol.
My brother was not monitored for his heart nor were we told that his medication could cause damages to his heart that would lead to his death. His doctor saw him two days prior to his death and did not send him for further testing for his heart.
