Active ingredient of fluphenazine and mechanism of action
Fluphenazine is a phenothiazine antipsychotic drug used for mental health conditions. The active ingredient in fluphenazine is fluphenazine hydrochloride. It works by blocking the action of dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is associated with psychotic symptoms. By blocking dopamine receptors, fluphenazine helps reduce symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, and disorganized thinking.
Uses of fluphenazine
Treatment of schizophrenia: Fluphenazine is an antipsychotic medication used in the treatment of schizophrenia. It helps manage symptoms such as psychosis and anxiety, by balancing dopamine levels in the brain.
Management of bipolar disorder: Fluphenazine can also be utilized for managing bipolar disorder. By stabilizing mood swings and reducing episodes of mania or depression, it aids in the long-term management of this chronic condition. Some common side effects may include dry mouth, tiredness, and weakness.

If you miss a dose of fluphenazine, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is closer to the time of your next dose. Do not double your next dose or take more than what is prescribed. Missing doses of fluphenazine may increase your risk of relapse in your symptoms.

Precautions and warnings for fluphenazine
- Fluphenazine may cause drowsiness, dizziness, or blurred vision. Use caution when engaging in activities that require alertness until you know how fluphenazine affects you
- As fluphenazine treatment can worsen glaucoma, this medication is contraindicated in patients with known or suspected narrow-angle glaucoma
- Fluphenazine may increase blood pressure in individuals with pheochromocytoma, a rare tumor of the adrenal glands. It is important to monitor blood pressure closely in individuals with this condition if they are taking fluphenazine
- It may interact with other medications, so it is important to inform your healthcare provider about all the medications you are taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and herbal supplements
- Fluphenazine may have an increased risk of side effects in elderly patients, so careful monitoring is necessary
- Avoid sudden discontinuation of fluphenazine, as it may lead to withdrawal symptoms or a return of psychotic symptoms
- Fluphenazine is not recommended for use during pregnancy as it may cause harm to the unborn baby. It is also not recommended for use while breastfeeding as it can pass into breast milk and affect the nursing infant
- Fluphenazine should be used with caution in pediatric patients due to potential adverse effects on growth, development, and behavior
- You should not use this medicine if you are allergic to fluphenazine or other phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine, perphenazine
Side effects of fluphenazine
Common side effects of fluphenazine may include:
- Dry mouth
- Blurred vision
Serious side effects:
- Fluphenazine can cause various neurological side effects, including dystonia (muscle spasms), akathisia (restlessness), and tardive dyskinesia (involuntary movements of the face and body)
- Fluphenazine has the potential to cause cardiovascular side effects, such as orthostatic hypotension (a drop in blood pressure upon standing), tachycardia (rapid heart rate), and arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms)
- Fluphenazine can lead to various metabolic changes, including weight gain, hyperlipidemia (elevated blood lipid levels), and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar levels). These effects may increase the risk of developing conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity
- A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction such as a rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or trouble breathing
Contact your healthcare provider if you experience severe or persistent side effects.
There is a potential risk of adverse reactions when taking fluphenazine with other medications. Here are some potential drug interactions of fluphenazine:
- Central nervous system (CNS) depressants: Combining fluphenazine with other CNS depressants like alcohol, sedatives, tranquilizers, or opioids can increase the risk of excessive sedation, drowsiness, and respiratory depression. It is essential to use caution when taking these medications concurrently
- Anticholinergic drugs: Fluphenazine has anticholinergic properties, meaning it can block the action of acetylcholine in the body. When combined with other anticholinergic drugs such as certain antihistamines, tricyclic antidepressants, or medications for Parkinson’s disease, it can enhance the anticholinergic effects, leading to symptoms like dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision, and urinary retention
- QT prolonging drugs: Fluphenazine can cause QT interval prolongation, which can increase the risk of developing an irregular heartbeat. Combining it with other medications that also have this potential effect, such as certain antibiotics, antiarrhythmics, or antifungals, can further increase this risk. It is important to closely monitor patients who are taking both fluphenazine and QT prolonging drugs
- Dopamine agonists: Fluphenazine works by blocking dopamine receptors in the brain. Combining it with dopamine agonists, which stimulate dopamine receptors, can counteract the effects of both medications and reduce their effectiveness. This can be problematic for individuals with Parkinson’s disease who may be taking both fluphenazine and dopamine agonists
- Antidepressants: Certain antidepressants, particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), can increase the levels of fluphenazine in the body. This can potentially lead to an increased risk of side effects, such as extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) or neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). Close monitoring is necessary when combining fluphenazine with antidepressants
It is important to note that this list is not exhaustive, and there may be other potential drug interactions with fluphenazine. Therefore, it is crucial for individuals taking fluphenazine to inform their healthcare providers about all medications, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements, that they are taking. This will help ensure the safe and effective use of fluphenazine and minimize the risk of drug interactions.
