Doctors at the local clinic stopped her oral medication and started AM on an injectable medication (flupenthixol
) to minimise the risk of overdose.
decanoate and relapse prevention in alcoholics: results from a placebo-controlled study.
A literature review identified Amisulpride, Flupenthixol
, Haloperidol, Levopromazine, Sulpiride, Thioridazine, Zuclopenthixol and second generation antipsychotics at higher doses (Aripiprazole, Olanzapine, Risperidone) as high risk of inducing Parkinson symptoms.
Figure 2: The pharmacological agents that were tested included the following: First-generation antipsychotics: Flupenthixol
decanoate Haloperidol Thiothixene Second-generation antipsychotics: Aripriprazole Olanzapine Ziprasidone Mood stabilisers: Carbamazepine Valproate semisodium Lamotrigine Topiramate Antidepressants: Amitriptyline Fluoxetine Fluvoxamine Phenelzine sulfate Mianserin Dietary supplementation: Omega-3 fatty acid However, these claims were made based on single study effects and therefore require replication.
When re-evaluated 6 months later, she was being maintained on olanzapine 10 mg twice daily, lorazepam 2 mg at bedtime, and 40 mg long-acting flupenthixol
every 4 weeks.
(11) These include the atypical antipsychotics and sulpiride, (12) which has curiously been registered as an AD along with flupenthixol
in South Africa.
Haloperidol, trifluoperazine, and flupenthixol
accounted for 92% of the first-generation antipsychotics used at the time of interview by these participants, while risperidone, olanzapine, and quetiapine accounted for 74% of second-generation agents they took.
She refused further oral medication but agreed to take a depot antipsychotic injection of flupenthixol
decanoate 40 mg.
Dose-response curves were determined for d-amphetamine, for dopaminergic antagonists SCH23390, eticlopride, and flupenthixol
, and for dopaminergic agonists SKF38393 and quinpirole.
The following psychotropic compounds not mentioned in the package insert did not cross-react at concentrations up to 100 mg/L (cross-reactivity <0.3%): the antipsychotic substances propericiazine, pipothiazine, trifluoperazine, fluphenazine, flupenthixol
, zuclopenthixol, olanzapine, clozapine, loxapine, amisulpride, and risperidone and the antidepressant substances tianeptine, dosulepine, viloxazine, paroxetine, citalopram, venlafaxine, and sertraline.
YOKOHAMA, JAPAN -- Olanzapine and flupenthixol
both improved schizophrenic symptoms in a small head-to-head comparison, with olanzapine causing fewer side effects, Dr.
Other investigators studied the effectiveness of the dopamine [D.sub.2] receptor antagonist flupenthixol
in preventing relapse both in alcoholic patients and in the loss-of-control model.
