Loxitane Uses

How Loxitane Works

Loxitane belongs to a group of medications called typical (or first-generation) antipsychotic medications. It is not entirely known precisely how the drug works. However, it is known that Loxitane blocks or lessens the effects of dopamine, a chemical in the brain, that may be elevated in people with schizophrenia.
Loxitane is not a cure for schizophrenia; it only helps to control symptoms (see Symptoms of Schizophrenia).
