The dose of Haldol Decanoate 50 or Haldol Decanoate 100 should be expressed in terms of its haloperidol content. The starting dose of haloperidol decanoate should be based on the patient's age, clinical history, physical condition, and response to previous antipsychotic therapy. The preferred approach to determining the minimum effective dose is to begin with lower initial doses and to adjust the dose upward as needed. For patients previously maintained on low doses of antipsychotics (. up to the equivalent of 10 mg/day oral haloperidol), it is recommended that the initial dose of haloperidol decanoate be 10–15 times the previous daily dose in oral haloperidol equivalents; limited clinical experience suggests that lower initial doses may be adequate.

Herbs and supplements. Increasingly, people with sleep difficulties have been turning to herbal remedies instead of sedative-hypnotic drugs such as the BZDs. Melatonin (5-methoxy-N-acetyltryptamine), a hormone released from the pineal gland (a small pine-cone shaped structure in the brain) is essential in regulating circadian rhythms (approximately 24-hour intervals). In mammals, the melatonin rhythm is generated by an internal circadian clock in the hypothalamus region of the brain that is linked to the light/dark cycle of the 24-hour day.
