Hi Scott,

Trifluoperazine (Stelazine) is similar to haloperidol (Haldol) in many ways. It's a potent D2 antagonist with a relatively high (albeit dose-dependent) risk of inducing acute EPS.

2.5mg haloperidol is thought to be comparable to about 5mg trifluoperazine.

Trifluoperazine and haloperidol might rarely provoke weight loss, yet a modest weight gain seems to be the norm.

Kind regards

Ed
