Solution for intramuscular administration oily 1 ml

active substance:

haloperidol decanoate 70.52 mg

(corresponding to 50 mg of haloperidol)

auxiliary substances: benzyl alcohol - 15 mg; sesame oil - up to 1 ml

Pharmachologic effect

Pharmacological action - antipsychotic, neuroleptic, antiemetic.

Dosing and Administration

IM, in the gluteal region.

It is intended exclusively for adults, exclusively for intramuscular injection. It is forbidden to enter IV.

Doses exceeding 3 ml should be avoided, in order to avoid an unpleasant feeling of bursting at the injection site.

Adults: patients who are on long-term treatment with oral antipsychotics (mainly haloperidol), we can recommend switching to depot injections. The dose should be selected on an individual basis due to significant individual differences in the response. Selection of the dose should be carried out with strict medical supervision of the patient. The choice of the initial dose is made taking into account the symptoms of the disease, its severity, the dose of haloperidol or other antipsychotics prescribed during the previous treatment.

At the beginning of treatment every 4 weeks, it is recommended to prescribe doses 10-15 times higher than oral haloperidol, which usually corresponds to 25-75 mg of haloperidol decanoate (0.5-1.5 ml). The maximum initial dose should not exceed 100 mg.

Depending on the effect, the dose can be stepped up to 50 mg, until the optimal effect is obtained. Usually, the maintenance dose corresponds to a 20-fold daily dose of oral haloperidol. When the symptoms of the underlying disease recur in the period of dose selection, treatment of haloperidol with decanoate can be supplemented with oral haloperidol. Usually, injections are administered every 4 weeks, but in view of the large individual differences in efficacy, a more frequent use of the drug may be required.

Elderly patients and patients with oligophrenia: a smaller initial dose is recommended, for example - 12.5-25 mg every 4 weeks. In the future, depending on the effect, the dose can be increased.
