    Hi Stephanie:

    I'm not a physician, but off the top of my head, I can think of Haldol Decanoate, which is a long term-injection (depo), used for psychotic disorders. It is primarily prescribed for schizophrenia, but physicians may use it for other disorders. You can learn more about Haldol Decanoate here.

     

    I hope this helps,

    Dr. Diana Walcutt
