Moban Warnings and Precautions

Specific Moban Warnings and Precautions

Warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Moban include the following:
  • The medication can cause tardive dyskinesia. This is a condition involving unusual, uncontrollable body or facial movements. It can become permanent even if Moban is stopped. The best way to prevent this is to tell your healthcare provider right away if you notice any abnormal movements (including abnormal movements of the tongue) while taking Moban.
  • Moban can cause a life-threatening condition called neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). Some symptoms of NMS include:
    • A high fever
    • Stiff muscles
    • Confusion
    • Irregular pulse or blood pressure
    • A fast heart rate (tachycardia)
    • Sweating
    • Irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias).
Tell your healthcare provider right away if think you might have NMS.
  • Moban can impair your mental or physical abilities to drive a car or operate heavy machinery, especially when you first start taking it. Make sure you know how Moban affects you before you perform any activities that require mental concentration or physical coordination.
  • Moban can increase the level of prolactin (a natural hormone) in your blood. This can cause various problems, such as breast enlargement, breast discharge, menstrual changes, or sexual problems.
  • The medication may cause depression or make it worse in people who already have it. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking Moban if you have a history of depression.
  • Moban may increase the risk of seizures, although this risk is most likely quite low compared to other antipsychotic medications. Before starting treatment, tell your healthcare provider if you have epilepsy or a history of seizures.


  • Antipsychotics like Moban have been reported to cause low white blood cells. Let your healthcare provider know if you develop frequent or persistent infections, as this may be a sign of low white blood cells. If you already have a low white blood cell count (or have had such a problem in the past), your healthcare provider should monitor your white blood cell count frequently during the first few months you take Moban. 


  • Moban is considered a pregnancy Category C medication. This means that it may not be safe to take while pregnant. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of using the drug during pregnancy (see Moban and Pregnancy).
  • It is not known if Moban passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding or plan to start, discuss this with your healthcare provider prior to using the drug (see Moban and Breastfeeding).
  • Moban can interact with certain other medications (see Moban Drug Interactions).
