Haloperidol with an anxiety disorder would be in my mind the most horrific experience after the sedation wore off, the akathisia, which is not anxiety but a side effect consisting of skin crawling need to move, would be interpreted as anxiety. Something much lower on the totem pole like Zyprexa would not have nearly this effect.
