A Summary of Side Effects of Thiothixene

It is possible that you may experience some or none of these thiothixene side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking thiothixene.

While it may not be a side effect of thiothixene, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
