What Is Iloperidone Used For?

How Does It Work?

Iloperidone belongs to a group of medications called atypical (or second-generation) antipsychotic medications. It is not entirely known how iloperidone works for the treatment of schizophrenia. However, it is known that iloperidone blocks or lessens the effects of certain chemicals in the brain. These brain chemicals (such as dopamine and serotonin) may be elevated in people with schizophrenia.
 

Can Children Use It?

Iloperidone is not approved for use in children. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using iloperidone in children.
