A six-day maintenance phase followed. Both groups improved at one hour, one day, and seven days after starting treatment, and neither group differed as to degree or rapidity of symptom(More)
A new gas chromatographic mass spectrometric chemical ionization assay for haloperidol with selectedion monitoring is presented which provides for better combined selectivity and sensitivity than previous assays. Levels of haloperidol in 2 ml of human plasma were reproducibly measured down to subnanogram levels. Both methane and methane--ammonia chemical(More)
In a double-blind controlled study, 20 acutely psychotic inpatients were treated with different haloperidol dosage regimens. Over a 24-hour period, 10 of the patients were treated with rapid intramuscular neuroleptization at 10 mg per dose and 10 at 2 mg per dose. The patients were then treated for 6 more days with an oral dose equivalent to that given over(More)
