Research Facts
Trifluoperazine, sold under a number of brand names, is a typical antipsychotic primarily used to treat schizophrenia.[1] It may also be used short term in those with generalized anxiety disorder but is less preferred to benzodiazepines.[1] It is of the phenothiazine chemical class.
This medication is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as schizophrenia, psychotic disorders). Trifluoperazine helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It can reduce aggressive behavior and the desire to hurt yourself/others. It may also help to decrease hallucinations (hearing/seeing things that are not there). Trifluoperazine is a psychiatric medication that belongs to the class of drugs called phenothiazine antipsychotics. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain.
