Nedol injection is used for treating schizophrenia and Tourette's syndrome (repetitive tics). The main component of this injection is haloperidol decanoate. It belongs to the class of antipsychotics.

The mode of action of Nedol injection is by blocking chemical substances in the brain that affect mood and thoughts. This injection is only given intramuscularly (IM). Managing symptoms of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations, delusions, etc., is one of the main uses of Nedol injection.
