Loxitane Drug Information
One of the medications used to treat schizophrenia is Loxitane® (loxapine). It comes in a capsule and is taken anywhere from two to four times a day. How often you take this medicine and how much will depend on various factors, such as the severity of your schizophrenia and if you are taking other medications.
Prior to beginning treatment with Loxitane, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. This includes any side effects to watch out for, what to do if they occur, and when extra monitoring may be required during treatment. For example, people with glaucoma or epilepsy may need to take certain precautions or even consider a different schizophrenia treatment.
