In brief: Depends

The effectiveness of this dose of Haldol (haloperidol) depends on several factors.
Some people will get a calming effect from Haldol (haloperidol) within the first few days of its use. If there are problems with hallucinations or bizarre thoughts, this dose may not be helpful enough, and it would take several days to make a decision about this. Effectiveness would also depend on how quickly the body metabolizes the medicine.
