Moban Side Effects
Drowsiness is the most common side effect that has been reported with Moban. Side effects of the medication may also include constipation, hyperactivity, nausea, and dry mouth. These side effects are generally minor and don't require treatment in most cases. However, it is possible to develop serious side effects of Moban, such as rapid heart rate, depression, or unusual body movements.
As of January 2010, the manufacturer of Moban has decided to stop making this medication. It is predicted that all current supplies will be depleted by June 2010. All people taking Moban should talk with their healthcare providers immediately about switching to a different medication.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Moban® (molindone hydrochloride). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Moban. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Moban side effects with you.)
Moban is an older schizophrenia medication that was approved many years ago. With newer medications, side effects are carefully documented, and the exact percentage of people who develop each side effect is known. With older medications (like Moban), side effect information is less specific and exact percentages are not reported.
While the exact percentage of people who developed each Moban side effect was not reported, it is known that drowsiness is the most common side effect. Other possible side effects included:
- Unexplained happy or pleasant feelings (euphoria)
- Blurred vision
- Dry mouth
- Increased salivation
- Difficulty passing urine
- Increased sex drive
- Impotence (also known as erectile dysfunction or ED).
