How do I take/use this medicine?

Zuclopenthixol Intramuscular injection is to be injected deep into the muscles. This is usually injected into the buttock muscles or the thigh muscles.

Your doctor or nurse will administer the injection for you. Your doctor will advise you about how often you need this injection.

Zuclopenthixol Intramuscular injection is given if you are not able to swallow pills or if your doctor has decided that an injection gives better control over your symptoms as compared to a pill.

You may need to use Zuclopenthixol Intramuscular injection for some time before the full benefits can be felt. Do not be discouraged if you do not feel better soon after the injection has been given. It may sometimes take a few weeks or even a few months for improvement to be felt.

It is important that you continue with the injections even when you feel well. Do not stop using Zuclopenthixol Intramuscular injection unless your doctor has decided to do so. If this medicine is stopped suddenly, you may feel unwell or your condition may worsen. When your doctor decides that you do not need Zuclopenthixol Intramuscular injection anymore, he will usually reduce your dose slowly.

In order for you to get the most benefit from Zuclopenthixol Intramuscular injection, use it exactly as advised by your doctor. Do not use more or less than prescribed and do not skip any doses.
