Whether it's: oral or injectable, you can have involuntary movements where arms, legs, face move (see your M.D. if this happens); excitability or tiredness, it depends. Many people do fine, and the symptoms of their illness may resolve. A lot depends on the severity of your illness, smoking, dose of Haldol, (haloperidol) and if it’s oral, injection, any other meds, etc.
