Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Haldol. It needs to be at least 1250 words. The last section includes concluding response to this problem. The method used is particularized examination of the literature together with the critical summarizing and personal inferences on the topic.
Haldol is a brand name of an antipsychotic medication that is used by people who suffer from severe physical or mental illness and helps normalize some difficulties occurred within the mental process (Ogbru, 2012). Its generic name is Haloperidol Lactate (AHFS, 2014). This preparation has been approved by the USA Food and Drug Administration in 1967 and after that it has come on the market (Ogbru, 2012). Haldol is manufactured in tablets with 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 mg of Haloperidol in each. according to this oral concentrate is 1 and 2 mg/ml. Injectable solution (lactate) is considered to be 5 mg/ml while injectable solution (decanoate) stands for 50 and 100 mg/ml (Ogbru, 2012). Storage conditions for this drug are remained to be 15-30 C (59-86 F) or it corresponds to normal room temperature (Ogbru, 2012).
Information about pricing of this drug has been updated in Feb 2014 and the comparative data includes facts that “Haloperidol 0.5MG Tablets (SANDOZ): 90/$16.99 or 180/$22.97. Haloperidol 1MG Tablets (MYLAN): 90/$19.99 or 180/$27.98. Haloperidol 10MG Tablets (ZYDUS PHARMACEUTICALS (USA)): 60/$72.99 or 180/$202.98. Haloperidol 2MG Tablets (MYLAN): 90/$20.99 or 270/$40.96. Haloperidol 20MG Tablets (SANDOZ): 60/$124.99 or 180/$342.97. Haloperidol 5MG Tablets (MYLAN): 90/$25.99 or 270/$55.98” (AHFS, 2014). Therefore, it should be admitted that price depends on the quantity of the Haloperidol in one tablet and the number of tablets in the pack.
Haloperidol is widely used for the treatment of schizophrenia concerning all stages of the disease “including acute psychotic episodes as well for long-term stabilization and to minimize risk of relapse” (AHFS, 2014).
