I've actually had a really good experience with Haldol--better overall than even the atypicals. It slowed down my racing thoughts quickly without making me too sedated. I could take it prn instead of having to take it regularly. Unfortunately, I did end up getting tardive dyskenesia effects, so my pdoc took me off it and put me on massive doses of vitamin E. I wouldn't suggest, though, that you not write it off just based on the bad reputation it has gotten over the years as being used to "control" helpless institutionalized patients.
