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.

Liesing has one of the highest population shares of people with Roman Catholic faith, %, compared with Vienna overall at %, due to a very low foreign share. Eleven Catholic Parishes form the town Deconate 23 in the municipality. On the other hand, the proportions of people with Islamic faith with %, and of Orthodox faith, with %, are both below the average (Vienna citywide: % or 6%). The proportion of the Evangelical people was % of the district population, the second highest in Vienna. Nearly % of the district population, in 2001, belonged to no religion, where this was the 3rd highest value of a Vienna district. Another % of the population had expressed either none or some other religion.

Given these considerations, antipsychotic drugs should be prescribed in a manner that is most likely to minimize the occurrence of tardive dyskinesia. Chronic antipsychotic treatment should generally be reserved for patients who suffer from a chronic illness that 1) is known to respond to antipsychotic drugs, and 2) for whom alternative, equally effective, but potentially less harmful treatments are not available or appropriate. In patients who do require chronic treatment, the smallest dose and the shortest duration of treatment producing a satisfactory clinical response should be sought. The need for continued treatment should be reassessed periodically.
