Well, my sweet little bipolar husband is about to have yet another medicine change. THe doctor wants to take him off the cymbalta and the seroquel and add haldol.  I assume that the lithium would remain.
 
two questions:  1) does anyone have experience concerning haldol?  It is to control his manic which is expressed as angry rages.  Are there side effects to look out for?
 
2)  Has anyone else had lithium blood numbers go to 1.9?  How much is considered lethal?  He had become severely confused mentally.  He wasn't even remembering to take a shower that last morning.  Numbers weren't making any sense to him, etc.  We must have been very close to a disaster.  He was on 1500 mg and dropped to 0 for 3 days and then back to 900 per day which is where he is now.
 
Thanks for you help.  APG

Thanks Hippy Girl.  I'll check those sites right now.  Guess you understand why I'm concerned.  Two of his main 3 drugs are being phased out and this haldol is being added.  No telling what we'rte in for.................Best wishes.  APG
