Fluphenazine functions as a dopamine antagonist, blocking the dopamine receptors in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter involved in mood, perception, and other cognitive functions. In psychotic conditions, an excess of dopamine is often associated with symptoms. By reducing the action of dopamine, Fluphenazine can help in reducing psychotic symptoms and improving cognitive and behavioral functions.



Fluphenazine is a potent medication primarily used in the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. It belongs to the class of drugs known as typical antipsychotics or neuroleptics, which help in managing symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, and disorganized thinking by affecting the balance of natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain.

● Administer the medication as prescribed by a healthcare provider, which could be in oral form or as a depot injection for long-lasting effects.
