The searches i made on the net, of which i
only post one conservative one here, do not
look good for haldol/lithium interaction.
However, perhaps a doctor with combo experience
could make it work.

As for the neuroprotective aspects of
lithium - that is in the research mode
right now, and i am not at all sure as
to how quickly this neuroprotective/neurogenerative aspect
lasts, begins, and ends and effects
drug interactions.

I would be cautious given what I have
seen on the net at least.


"DRUG INTERACTIONS

An encephalopathic syndrome (characterized by weakness, lethargy, fever, tremulousness and confusion, extrapyramidal symptoms, leukocytosis, elevated serum enzymes, BUN, and FBS) followed by irreversible brain damage has occurred in a few patients treated with lithium plus HALDOL. A causal relationship between these events and the concomitant administration of lithium and HALDOL has not been established; however, patients receiving such combined therapy should be monitored closely for early evidence of neurological toxicity and treatment discontinued promptly if such signs appear."
