Stelazine is an antipsychotic medication used to treat anxiety and schizophrenia symptoms. The medication may also be used to treat nausea and vomiting.

Trifluoperazine is a phenothiazine antipsychotic that decreases the effect of dopamine in your brain to balance and regulate your brain cell activity. These actions allow Stelazine to manage, prevent, and treat symptoms related to schizophrenia and anxiety as well as nausea and vomiting when used long or short term.

Dosage and Administration

The dose and administration regimen of Stelazine that is prescribed will vary depending on the individual and mental issue being treated. Follow all your healthcare provider’s instructions and read packaging labels carefully to ensure the best results. Do not change your dose or take it for a different length of time than that prescribed on your own.

  • Swallow tablet whole with water
  • Take your doses at the same times each day
  • Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest amount of time needed for desired results
