I wish we could do a B52 cocktail, but our physicians will not do it. It is either haldol or ativan and not both. I have seen some give geodon with good results. I wish they would think about using that more.

Geodon is very effective for agitation secondary to the DTs.

Many years ago we gave a ten four over and out. 10 of haldol, 4 of ativan and 50 of benadryl.. This was only for the worst psychotic violent and truly dangerous patients in the ER.

Wow I love that name and holy cow that's a lot of meds!

We've done 10-2-50 before but not 10-4-50. That sounds wonderful.

10/4/50 does work miracles on even the most psychotic patients.
