Suggest treatment for drug overdose
Is this common practice? Can anything be done to get med orders changed? Are the interactions dangerous?
It is a legal process

Changing medicine order is a legal process because this must have been done under court order. I think haloperidol might have caused confusion so deterioration in condition. I don't agree that shock therapy has any role. he might need to reduce dose of haloperidol to minimal level ,with serum drug monitoring done for appropriate levels. generally it should not be life threatening except in case of complications due to sedation.
