Ingredients

  • TRIFLUOPERAZINE 5mg

How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Trifluoperazine exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

You may need to take Trifluoperazine for some time before the full benefits can be felt. Do not be discouraged if you do not feel better soon after taking the medicine. Trifluoperazine must be taken regularly for it to work well.

Do not stop taking Trifluoperazine unless your doctor has decided that you can stop. If Trifluoperazine is stopped suddenly, you may feel unwell or your condition may worsen. When your doctor decides that you do not need Trifluoperazine anymore, he will usually reduce your dose slowly. Follow the doctor's instructions carefully.

Take Trifluoperazine with food. This will help to minimise any stomach discomfort that Trifluoperazine may cause. Try to take it at the same time everyday.

Trifluoperazine is available as a tablet and oral solution.

If you have been given the oral solution, use the dropper, measuring spoon or cup provided to measure out your dose accurately.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or if you become pregnant while being treated with Trifluoperazine. Use effective birth control methods while being treated with Trifluoperazine.

Do not breastfeed while you are being treated with Trifluoperazine. Alert your doctor if you are breastfeeding.

Alert your doctor if you have any of these conditions:

- an enlarged prostate or difficulty urinating
- epilepsy (fits) or a history of fits
- Parkinson's disease
- glaucoma (high pressure in the eye)
- heart, liver, kidney or lung disease
- angina (chest pain)
- myasthenia gravis (a condition that causes muscle weakness)
- breast cancer or tumours dependent on a hormone known as prolactin

Trifluoperazine may affect the way your body adjusts to temperature changes in the environment. Avoid exposure to very cold or very hot environments.

If you are going for an operation, including minor operations and dental work, inform your doctor or dentist that you are being treated with Trifluoperazine.

For as long as you are being treated with Trifluoperazine, you will need to have regular blood tests to make sure that your blood counts are normal. Your doctor will advise you about how often you need to have blood tests.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you have liver disease, any blood disorders or bone marrow suppression.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Avoid alcohol. Alcohol will worsen the dizziness and drowsiness caused by Trifluoperazine.

Why do I need this medicine?

Trifluoperazine is used to treat schizophrenia and paranoia. It helps to relieve symptoms common in schizophrenia and paranoia, such as distorted thinking and emotional instability.

It is also used in the short-term treatment of anxiety, agitation and dangerously impulsive behaviour.

Trifluoperazine may also be used for other medical conditions, such as nausea and vomiting.

What side effects could I experience?

Trifluoperazine may cause you to temporarily develop some symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease such as slow movements, shaky or stiff hands or legs, poor sense of balance, drooling, lethargy and fixed stare. These symptoms may be more frequent during the first few days of starting treatment or may occur if your dose is being adjusted. Alert your doctor if these symptoms appear.

Trifluoperazine may also make you drowsy or dizzy. If you feel drowsy or dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

You may feel dizzy when getting up from a sitting or lying down position, especially if you are taking Trifluoperazine for the first time or if your dose is still being adjusted. This is normal and should disappear gradually as you get used to the medicine. It will help if you get up slowly from a sitting or lying down position.

Other common side effects of Trifluoperazine include dry mouth, blurred vision, restlessness, difficulty sleeping, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, weight gain, confusion and water retention. Inform your doctor if these side effects get worse or do not go away.

It may also cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid exposure to the sun and UV lamps. Wear sunblock or a hat if you go outdoors.

Other side effects are less common but may need immediate medical help. Alert your doctor immediately if you develop any of these symptoms:
- fast or irregular heartbeat
- any signs of an impending heart attack
- difficulty breathing or wheezing
- uncontrolled muscle movements of your body, face or tongue, such as lip smacking or worm-like movements of the tongue
- muscle stiffness or spasm with excessive sweating
- uncontrollable urge to move constantly or an inability to sit still
- shaky or trembling hands or legs
- excessive drowsiness, dizziness or if you faint
- unexplained fever
- confusion or disorientation
- rapid rise in your body temperature or an inability to cool down on a hot day
- yellowing of the eyes or skin
- swelling, redness or pain of the lower leg
- severe tiredness or weakness
- fever with persistent sore throat or mouth ulcers, or other signs of infection

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

If you have been given the oral solution, throw it away 1 month after you open the bottle.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Alert your doctor if you are taking any of these medicines:

- sleeping pills or anxiety medication such as diazepam, alprazolam or similar
- medicines that can cause drowsiness such as opioid painkillers (e.g. morphine, codeine), hay fever medicines
- antidepressants or mood medicines such as fluvoxamine, lithium, venlafaxine
- epilepsy (fits) medicines such as phenytoin, carbamazepine, valproate or phenobarbitone
- Parkinson's disease medicines such as levodopa and apomorphine
- heart medicines used to treat irregular heart rate, such as quinidine
- high blood pressure medicines such as guanethidine, propranolol and diuretics (water pills)
- medicines used to treat low blood pressure such as midodrine
- anti-fungal medicines such as ketoconazole or itraconazole
- metoclopramide (medicine to treat vomiting)
- antibiotics such as moxifloxacin, ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin
- blood-thinning medicines such as warfarin
- desferrioxamine (an iron-binder)

Trifluoperazine must not be taken together with antacids as antacids can reduce the effectiveness of Trifluoperazine. If you must take antacids, take between meals at least 2 hours after you have taken Trifluoperazine.
