Fluphenazine (Anatensol®, Dapotum®, Lyogen®, Modecate®, Moditen®, Omca®, Pacinol®, Permitil®, Prolixin®, Siqualone®, Tensofin®, Valamina®) is a typical antipsychotic drug. Fluphenazine is sometimes given via injection, usually once or twice per month.
Common side effects include: dry-mouth, muscle-stiffness, muscle-cramping, tardive dyskinesia, tremors, and weight-gain. The risk of tardive dyskinesia can be greater than ~4% annually. These symptoms can be permanent, despite discontinuation of the medication.
