Thiothixene for Schizophrenia

A schizophrenia treatment available by prescription only, thiothixene (Navane®) belongs to a group of drugs called typical (or first-generation) antipsychotic medications. It comes in the form of a capsule and is typically taken between one and three times a day.
 
Although it is not entirely clear how thiothixene works, the medication is known to block or lessen the effects of dopamine, a chemical in the brain. Dopamine may be elevated in people with schizophrenia.
