Navane Uses

How Navane Works

Navane belongs to a group of medications called typical (or first-generation) antipsychotic medications. In particular, it is part of a group of medications called thioxanthines, which are very similar to phenothiazines (another group of antipsychotic medications). It is not known precisely how Navane works. However, it is known that Navane blocks or lessens the effects of dopamine, a chemical in the brain. Dopamine may be elevated in people with schizophrenia.
 
Navane is not a cure for schizophrenia. It only helps to control symptoms (see Symptoms of Schizophrenia).
