Drug Mode of Action ::
Haloperidol blocks postsynaptic dopamine D1 and D2 receptors in the mesolimbic system and decreases the release of hypothalamic and hypophyseal hormones. It produces calmness and reduces aggressiveness with disappearance of hallucinations and delusions.
Drug Interactions ::
Carbamazepine and rifampicin reduce plasma concentrations. Symptoms of CNS depression may be enhanced by CNS depressants e.g. alcohol, hypnotics, general anaesthetics, anxiolytics and opioids. May reduce antihypertensive action of guanethidine. May increase risk of arrhythmia when used with drugs that prolong QT interval or diuretics that can cause electrolyte imbalance. May increase plasma levels of haloperidol when used with clozapine or chlorpromazine. Potentially Fatal: Increases lithium blood levels and may predispose to neuroleptic malignant syndrome.
