Depends on condition: Haloperidol is used for psychosis. If you cannot study because you are hearing voices or your thoughts are so scattered that you can't stay on topic, this medication can help. Otherwise, if you are not suffering from schizophrenia, it will affect you negatively. People describe themselves as having "cotton brain" while on this medication.
