Does 100mg haldol (haloperidol) decanoate stay in your system after the four weeks even a little bit?

no good: No good levels are warranted if missed monthly doses of Haldol (haloperidol) dec. The steady levels advantage might be gone shortly after 4 weeks leading to decompensation of psychosis. It is important to be compliant with dr instructions.
