Prolixin is an antipsychotic medication used to treat symptoms of psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia.

Fluphenazine is a typical antipsychotic that inhibits postsynaptic dopamine receptors in the mesolimbic pathway in the brain. This effect allows Prolixin to target symptoms of schizophrenia such as hallucinations and trouble organizing speech. Fluphenazine also has inhibitory effects on adrenergic, muscarinic, and histaminic receptors.

This antipsychotic medication has proven effective at decreasing and managing symptoms of schizophrenia. Prolixin’s adverse effect profile is similar to other first-generation antipsychotics as well as newer drugs.
