Haldol

Johnson & 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.

My son was 14 years old when he was given a dose of Haldol in the hospital in May,2016 for agitation, he immediately had life threaten attach that if we were not there, we believed he would have die. We were screaming for the doctors, who give him another drug to counter-act the dose of Haldol he was given. My son turn purple and blue, he got stiff, his eyes rolling, his neck and arms swollen in seconds and his heart rate reaches a very high level, he was hook up to all these equipment before that was beeping. The doctors and hospital staff immediately removed all the print outs from the equipment's while my son was having this attack. He later got another one, but it was not so bad. I can testify that Haldol can be a killer.

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.
