Biochem/physiol Actions:

Haloperidol is a butyrophenone antipsychotic. It is also classified as a neuroleptic (powerful tranquilizer). Haloperidol acts as a D2, D3, and D4 dopamine receptor antagonist and thus causes Parkinson′s disorder. It also has a negative effect on the central nervous system.
