Schizophrenia Home > Navane Withdrawal

Symptoms of Navane withdrawal may include diarrhea, nausea, and shakiness. To avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, your healthcare provider may decide to slowly wean you off your medication. It is not recommended that you stop Navane without your healthcare provider's approval.

An Introduction to Navane Withdrawal

Navane® (thiothixene) is a prescription medication approved to treat schizophrenia. As with most medications for mental illnesses, stopping Navane is not recommended without your healthcare provider's approval. Although Navane is not addicting and is not likely to be abused, the brain may need time to adjust to stopping Navane.

Navane Withdrawal Symptoms

Navane withdrawal symptoms can include, but are not limited to:
  • Digestive problems, such as diarrhea or abdominal pain (or stomach pain)
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Shakiness
  • Hallucinations, delusions, or other psychotic symptoms.
These Navane withdrawal symptoms may not improve with time, as they may be symptoms of the underlying disorder (schizophrenia).

Limiting Navane Withdrawal

Your healthcare provider may decide to wean you off Navane slowly, to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms -- though this may not be necessary in all situations. Even if you are switching to a different medication, your healthcare provider may still recommend stopping Navane slowly. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider before stopping Navane. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you notice any bothersome symptoms after stopping Navane.
