    Hello,
    Just want advice regarding this.I started using Haldol (following Doctors prescription)sometime in 2009 along with other drugs.I usually feel drowsy and experienced puffy face,weight gain,constant buzzing in head. I read about this and found out about taking Omega 3 supplements,fish oils.I stopped taking the anti psychotic drugs about a month ago.
    I felt a bit better,checked my BP about 2 weeks ago.It was 122/87,yesterday it was 137/84.
    I need advice concerning this.Dont want to continue with Haldol,etc.I notice i still have the buzzing in my head though.Im currently taking 1000mg Cod liver oil daily.Should i increase my dosage?
    Anticipating your advice.Thanx.

    Haldol turned me into a zombie, but I still chose to stick with the mental health professionals and have them adjust/change my medication as necessary.

    If I didn't have to take medication, I wouldn't, but I do so that I can be sane and deal with the joys and challenges of my life.

    All the best to you.
