My adult daughter (age 34) is diagnosed and is on
Few options are there for such patients.
Hello thanks for using ask a doctor service
As such there are no withdrawals from Haloperidol long acting injections. But stopping the drug might result in relapse of psychotic symptoms. You've mentioned that she has Schizophrenia and regular treatment is needed to maintain functionality.
You should build a rapport with her and continue to talk with her so that she has confidence in you. If she refuses to take medicines then other option is to give her medicines that can be given by mixing with food or liquids. These medicines are tasteless and odourless and can be given even without knowledge of the patient. But for this you will have to convince her psychiatrist for that.
Since she is ready for shots as of now so no need to get worried. She will be alright.
