Information on Loxapine

Several different medications are available for schizophrenia, one of which is loxapine (Loxitane®). This typical antipsychotic is believed to work by affecting levels of dopamine in the brain; however, the drug's mechanism of action is not entirely understood.
 
While most people have no problems with loxapine, information on the drug's precautions and warnings should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. This includes possible side effects to watch for, when to contact your healthcare provider, and what to do if you are taking other medications at the same time. If this is not the right treatment for you, don't worry -- several loxapine alternatives are available.
