Clinical Effects of Loxapine Inhalation Powder

In clinical studies, loxapine inhalation powder was shown to quickly reduce agitation in people with schizophrenia or bipolar I disorder. In these studies, people with these disorders who were experiencing agitation were given either loxapine inhalation powder or a placebo inhaler (an inhaler with no active ingredient). After two hours, those given loxapine inhalation powder were significantly less agitated than those given the placebo. The effects of loxapine inhalation powder were apparent as soon as 10 minutes after the dose was given.
