Mostly supportive: There is no antidote for an overdose of haldol (haloperidol). If caught acutely, lavage to get as much out of the stomach as possible, plus charcoal to absorb some. Large overdose can produce serious life-threatening effects on the body, including elevated temp, heart problems, muscle spasms, etc. Some symptoms can be counteracted with other medications; most require support until passes out of body.
