Molindone for Schizophrenia

Molindone hydrochloride (Moban®) is a drug that has been licensed to treat schizophrenia, a condition often characterized by symptoms such as:
 
  • Hallucinations
  • Delusions
  • Speaking infrequently, even when forced to interact
  • Flat affect (immobile facial expression, monotonous voice).
  •  
Although molindone can help treat the symptoms of this mental illness, it is not a cure. This prescription medication comes in tablet form and is generally taken two to four times a day. Molindone belongs to a group of drugs known as "typical antipsychotics."
