There's really no way of knowing for sure. Have you missed a period? If so, take a pregnancy test as a preliminary. If it is negative, and you still have missed your period, you should go into the doctor for a blood test right away. As Prolixin is a class C medication, there is not enough research to know whether it may be harmful during pregnancy, so the sooner you find out if you are pregnant, the better chance your doctor will have to evaluate if another drug would work beneficially in it's place. I know Prolixin has been known to cause false negative, and false positive results, so take a pregnancy test if you have missed your period, and regardless of the result see the doctor for a blood test to know for sure. Try to count back using your last period date to calculate when you would have ovulated to know if it's possible that you may have gotten pregnant within that time frame. Otherwise, a blood test is the only true way you'll be able to find out. Good luck! Answered by Cristen Mcduffee 2 years ago.

Does Prolixin cause weight loss and constipation?
Asked by Gita Supple 2 years ago.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Get started today! Answered by Claude Neubert 2 years ago.

Taking prolixin mornings instead of night?
Prolixin is causing bad dreams, would adjusting the time of day that is taken help? Asked by Lang Chiquito 2 years ago.

It might, but it also causes drowsiness, so you'd need to be aware of how it might affect you if you took it during the day. The best thing to do would be to call the doc and check with him first. Answered by Shaquana Eichenmiller 2 years ago.


Can my mother go off of Prolixin and not become psychotic again?
For the first 6 years that my mother was afflicted with this disease she (unfortunately) went off and on her medication (that she took in tablet form). For all I know-My mother has been ingesting Prolixin into her system for 30 years (since I don't know if that is the only anti psychotic medication my mother... Asked by Candice Canestrini 2 years ago.

My mother has been on a mandatory prolixin shot since I was 16. 24 years is too long to be on the same anti psychotic medication. About 15 years ago my mother looked into my eyes and spoke words that killed my soul. She said to me (when we were at a party being thrown by my ex best friend Sally) : "Is this medication going to hurt me in the long run"? I believe that this medication will hurt my mother in the long run, but she once tried to seriously harm me when she secretly switched herself from her mandatory Prolixin shots to Prolixin tablets that she didn't take. Why do people have to suffer from mental illness at all? Why must my precious mother be forced to take medication that I truly "intuitively" believe might kill her in the end? My entire family is comprised of Born Again Christians who are living to die and be with God in some "elusive" heaven. They all believe wholeheartedly that my mother must ingest this "poison" into her system for the rest of her life, but I wish that there was some other alternative to keep my mother both sane and ALIVE... Answered by Adriene Lehn 2 years ago.

My poor mother became afflicted with Schizophrenia when I was only 10 years old. She woke me up from peaceful dreams and told me that God was going to kill her for being a bad person. The next day she told me that my 2 uncles were going to butcher my 2 precious aunts and all my precious cousins... Won't this stupid medication eventually stop working effectively anyway? My mother has started acting weird (just recently), so I have a bad feeling that her Prolixin has stopped working effectively (but who wants to force her to increase her dosage)?

You may want to go with your mother to her next medication appointment. This way you would be able to speak to the person giving her the injections. You can let the person know that your "mother has started acting weird", as you put it. It's important for the person treating you mother to know this. You might be helping your mother and her treatment more than you realize by doing this. Best Wishes. Answered by Billy Gallo 2 years ago.

Some drugs paintings good for a few men and women and now not for others. So sure, it can be that the brand new treatment isn't suited for him. It might even be that he demands a larger dosage, or simply demands longer for the brand new meds to begin running (a few have a cumulative final result and do not paintings right away from day a million). It is obviously some thing he will have to talk to his health practitioner approximately although, as it is nice to check out and uncover some thing with a view to paintings for him. Answered by Keneth Kufel 2 years ago.

Even though Prolixin is not addicting, the brain may need some time to adjust to Prolixin withdrawal. If your mother stop it too quickly,she may experience shakiness, vomiting, and digestive problems. In order to reduce the chances of Prolixin withdrawal symptoms, your mother healthcare provider may decide to wean you off the medication slowly to avoid severe symptoms. Your mother health-care provider may decide to wean you off Prolixin slowly to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, although this may not be necessary in all situations. Even if your mother is switching to another medication, your mother health-care provider may still recommend gradually stopping the drug. Be sure to talk with your mother health-care provider before stopping Prolixin. Also, let your mother health-care provider know if she notice any bothersome symptoms after stopping it. Although Prolixinis not addicting and is not likely to be abused, the brain may need some time to adjust to stopping it.Be sure to talk with your mother doctor before stopping Prolixin. Take care as always. Answered by Lakendra Farness 2 years ago.


Okay to use Prolixin for a teen w/ schizophrenia?
For a teen with early onset of schizophrenia (15 yo) and has tried Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel but has not been effective. Is Prolixin a good choice? Asked by Pamelia Comas 2 years ago.

Only a qualified physician who has been treating the teen can make the decision whether it is appropriate/ok or not. Answered by Enda Wonders 2 years ago.

It depends somewhat on what symptoms of Schizophrenia has. Prolixin and Haldol are really good at treating hallucination, delusions, and agitation. The newer meds also treat some of the negative symptoms like isolating. Clozaril would be the usual next step after trying those meds. Prolixin and Haldol do work but they have a high incidence of side effects. Some people can tolerate those side effects with additional meds, some people have a permanent effect called tarditive dyskinesia, even after they start the med. Things to consider: make sure the highest dose was tried on the other meds? is an injectable med needed? Is mood lability a major problem? What are realistic goals for this teen? A mood stabilizer with antipsychotic may be a good choice, like Depakote. If the teen had any response to Risperdal, Risperdal Consta with another antipsychotic, like Clozaril may be a good option. The Consta gives a more stable amount of medicine because it is given as an injection every two weeks. Answered by Izola Lefebre 2 years ago.

I've used all the medicine at one time or other. I've found the medicine Stelazine to be one of the most effective with fewer side effects. Prolixin caused me to have asthma attacks, particularly at night when I was lying down. Everyone is different and their response to the meds are different. If the patient doesn't have asthma Prolixin is certainly worth considering. There is nothing wrong with Prolixin and the price is certainly right compared to Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel. A medicine to consider skipping in the search for a more successful medicine is Haldol. Be very weary of it. One thing that is an absolute with antipsychotics is if the person skips doses they will be worse off and have more symptoms than they were when they were untreated. No antipsychotic works unless it is taken religiously as prescribed. For non-conformers who can't take the med as prescribed there are shots that the doctor can administer once or twice a month which can be life changing. Generally it is a case of skipping doses that makes medicine ineffective as opposed to what is referred to as 'treatment resistant Schizophrenia" which does indeed exist. If the patient does have treatment resistant Schizophrenia the doctor will eventually move the person on to a medicine called Clozaril which will call for monitoring by blood tests. Always wait 6 weeks after being put on medicine before deciding how effective it is and before choosing another. Prolixin doesn't come with a black label warning against it as does Seroquel, Risperdal and Zyprexa. A black label warning is an FDA warning about increased risk of death. Answered by Clark Hilger 2 years ago.

It sounds logical to me. Prolixin is a drug that has been used to treat symptoms of schizophrenia. It's an older drug. They tried some of the newer drugs (Risperidol, Zyprexa, Seroquel) without success, so it seems reasonable that an older drug like Prolixin might be the next option. Answered by Lita Holbrook 2 years ago.

That is a good question, I think you should explain that do your Mental Health doctor cause thats the best solution to your problem, it's alright to hear from other people. Answered by Gabriela Astol 2 years ago.

Taking prolixin mornings instead of night?
Prolixin is causing bad dreams, would adjusting the time of day that is taken help? Asked by Junko Muina 2 years ago.

It might, but it also causes drowsiness, so you'd need to be aware of how it might affect you if you took it during the day. The best thing to do would be to call the doc and check with him first. Answered by Nicky Wascom 2 years ago.

Asked by Carmelia Yeubanks 2 years ago.

My mother has been on a mandatory prolixin shot since I was 16. 24 years is too long to be on the same anti psychotic medication. About 15 years ago my mother looked into my eyes and spoke words that killed my soul. She said to me (when we were at a party being thrown by my ex best friend Sally) : "Is this medication going to hurt me in the long run"? I believe that this medication will hurt my mother in the long run, but she once tried to seriously harm me when she secretly switched herself from her mandatory Prolixin shots to Prolixin tablets that she didn't take. Why do people have to suffer from mental illness at all? Why must my precious mother be forced to take medication that I truly "intuitively" believe might kill her in the end? My entire family is comprised of Born Again Christians who are living to die and be with God in some "elusive" heaven.

My poor mother became afflicted with Schizophrenia when I was only 10 years old. She woke me up from peaceful dreams and told me that God was going to kill her for being a bad person. The next day she told me that my 2 uncles were going to butcher my 2 precious aunts and all my precious cousins... Won't this stupid medication eventually stop working effectively anyway?

You may want to go with your mother to her next medication appointment. This way you would be able to speak to the person giving her the injections. You can let the person know that your "mother has started acting weird", as you put it. It's important for the person treating you mother to know this.

Some drugs paintings good for a few men and women and now not for others. So sure, it can be that the brand new treatment isn't suited for him.

Even though Prolixin is not addicting, the brain may need some time to adjust to Prolixin withdrawal. If your mother stop it too quickly,she may experience shakiness, vomiting, and digestive problems. In order to reduce the chances of Prolixin withdrawal symptoms, your mother healthcare provider may decide to wean you off the medication slowly to avoid severe symptoms. Your mother health-care provider may decide to wean you off Prolixin slowly to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, although this may not be necessary in all situations. Even if your mother is switching to another medication, your mother health-care provider may still recommend gradually stopping the drug. Be sure to talk with your mother health-care provider before stopping Prolixin. Also, let your mother health-care provider know if she notice any bothersome symptoms after stopping it. Although Prolixinis not addicting and is not likely to be abused, the brain may need some time to adjust to stopping it.Be sure to talk with your mother doctor before stopping Prolixin.

Okay to use Prolixin for a teen w/ schizophrenia?
For a teen with early onset of schizophrenia (15 yo) and has tried Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel but has not been effective. Is Prolixin a good choice? Asked by Ernest Chastin 2 years ago.

Only a qualified physician who has been treating the teen can make the decision whether it is appropriate/ok or not. Answered by Henrietta Poland 2 years ago.

It depends somewhat on what symptoms of Schizophrenia has. Prolixin and Haldol are really good at treating hallucination, delusions, and agitation. The newer meds also treat some of the negative symptoms like isolating. Clozaril would be the usual next step after trying those meds. Prolixin and Haldol do work but they have a high incidence of side effects. Some people can tolerate those side effects with additional meds, some people have a permanent effect called tarditive dyskinesia, even after they start the med. Things to consider: make sure the highest dose was tried on the other meds? is an injectable med needed? Is mood lability a major problem? What are realistic goals for this teen? A mood stabilizer with antipsychotic may be a good choice, like Depakote. If the teen had any response to Risperdal, Risperdal Consta with another antipsychotic, like Clozaril may be a good option. The Consta gives a more stable amount of medicine because it is given as an injection every two weeks. Answered by Tora Correiro 2 years ago.

I've used all the medicine at one time or other. I've found the medicine Stelazine to be one of the most effective with fewer side effects. Prolixin caused me to have asthma attacks, particularly at night when I was lying down. Everyone is different and their response to the meds are different. If the patient doesn't have asthma Prolixin is certainly worth considering. There is nothing wrong with Prolixin and the price is certainly right compared to Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel. A medicine to consider skipping in the search for a more successful medicine is Haldol. Be very weary of it. One thing that is an absolute with antipsychotics is if the person skips doses they will be worse off and have more symptoms than they were when they were untreated. No antipsychotic works unless it is taken religiously as prescribed. For non-conformers who can't take the med as prescribed there are shots that the doctor can administer once or twice a month which can be life changing. Generally it is a case of skipping doses that makes medicine ineffective as opposed to what is referred to as 'treatment resistant Schizophrenia" which does indeed exist. If the patient does have treatment resistant Schizophrenia the doctor will eventually move the person on to a medicine called Clozaril which will call for monitoring by blood tests. Always wait 6 weeks after being put on medicine before deciding how effective it is and before choosing another. Prolixin doesn't come with a black label warning against it as does Seroquel, Risperdal and Zyprexa. A black label warning is an FDA warning about increased risk of death. Answered by Sherri Landaker 2 years ago.

It sounds logical to me. Prolixin is a drug that has been used to treat symptoms of schizophrenia. It's an older drug.

There's really no way of knowing for sure. Have you missed a period? If so, take a pregnancy test as a preliminary. If it is negative, and you still have missed your period, you should go into the doctor for a blood test right away. As Prolixin is a class C medication, there is not enough research to know whether it may be harmful during pregnancy, so the sooner you find out if you are pregnant, the better chance your doctor will have to evaluate if another drug would work beneficially in it's place. I know Prolixin has been known to cause false negative, and false positive results, so take a pregnancy test if you have missed your period, and regardless of the result see the doctor for a blood test to know for sure. Try to count back using your last period date to calculate when you would have ovulated to know if it's possible that you may have gotten pregnant within that time frame. Otherwise, a blood test is the only true way you'll be able to find out. Good luck! Answered by Katerine Letourneaux 2 years ago.

Does Prolixin cause weight loss and constipation?
Asked by Loreen Easler 2 years ago.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information.

Try to count back using your last period date to calculate when you would have ovulated to know if it's possible that you may have gotten pregnant within that time frame. Otherwise, a blood test is the only true way you'll be able to find out. Good luck! Answered by Eura Angeloff 2 years ago.

Does Prolixin cause weight loss and constipation?
Asked by Fatima Weinzimer 2 years ago.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information.

Prolixin is causing bad dreams, would adjusting the time of day that is taken help? Asked by Codi Stager 2 years ago.

My mother has been on a mandatory prolixin shot since I was 16. 24 years is too long to be on the same anti psychotic medication.

I believe that this medication will hurt my mother in the long run, but she once tried to seriously harm me when she secretly switched herself from her mandatory Prolixin shots to Prolixin tablets that she didn't take.

You may want to go with your mother to her next medication appointment. This way you would be able to speak to the person giving her the injections.

Even though Prolixin is not addicting, the brain may need some time to adjust to Prolixin withdrawal. If your mother stop it too quickly,she may experience shakiness, vomiting, and digestive problems. In order to reduce the chances of Prolixin withdrawal symptoms, your mother healthcare provider may decide to wean you off the medication slowly to avoid severe symptoms. Your mother health-care provider may decide to wean you off Prolixin slowly to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, although this may not be necessary in all situations. Even if your mother is switching to another medication, your mother health-care provider may still recommend gradually stopping the drug. Be sure to talk with your mother health-care provider before stopping Prolixin. Also, let your mother health-care provider know if she notice any bothersome symptoms after stopping it.

Okay to use Prolixin for a teen w/ schizophrenia?
For a teen with early onset of schizophrenia (15 yo) and has tried Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel but has not been effective. Is Prolixin a good choice? Asked by Jospeh Kastor 2 years ago.

Only a qualified physician who has been treating the teen can make the decision whether it is appropriate/ok or not. Answered by Maisha Weirich 2 years ago.

It depends somewhat on what symptoms of Schizophrenia has. Prolixin and Haldol are really good at treating hallucination, delusions, and agitation. The newer meds also treat some of the negative symptoms like isolating. Clozaril would be the usual next step after trying those meds. Prolixin and Haldol do work but they have a high incidence of side effects. Some people can tolerate those side effects with additional meds, some people have a permanent effect called tarditive dyskinesia, even after they start the med. Things to consider: make sure the highest dose was tried on the other meds? is an injectable med needed? Is mood lability a major problem? What are realistic goals for this teen? A mood stabilizer with antipsychotic may be a good choice, like Depakote. If the teen had any response to Risperdal, Risperdal Consta with another antipsychotic, like Clozaril may be a good option. The Consta gives a more stable amount of medicine because it is given as an injection every two weeks. Answered by Bailey Carbonell 2 years ago.

I've used all the medicine at one time or other. I've found the medicine Stelazine to be one of the most effective with fewer side effects. Prolixin caused me to have asthma attacks, particularly at night when I was lying down. Everyone is different and their response to the meds are different. If the patient doesn't have asthma Prolixin is certainly worth considering. There is nothing wrong with Prolixin and the price is certainly right compared to Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel. A medicine to consider skipping in the search for a more successful medicine is Haldol. Be very weary of it. One thing that is an absolute with antipsychotics is if the person skips doses they will be worse off and have more symptoms than they were when they were untreated. No antipsychotic works unless it is taken religiously as prescribed. For non-conformers who can't take the med as prescribed there are shots that the doctor can administer once or twice a month which can be life changing. Generally it is a case of skipping doses that makes medicine ineffective as opposed to what is referred to as 'treatment resistant Schizophrenia" which does indeed exist. If the patient does have treatment resistant Schizophrenia the doctor will eventually move the person on to a medicine called Clozaril which will call for monitoring by blood tests. Always wait 6 weeks after being put on medicine before deciding how effective it is and before choosing another. Prolixin doesn't come with a black label warning against it as does Seroquel, Risperdal and Zyprexa. A black label warning is an FDA warning about increased risk of death. Answered by Jose Szczepanik 2 years ago.

It sounds logical to me. Prolixin is a drug that has been used to treat symptoms of schizophrenia. It's an older drug.

There's really no way of knowing for sure. Have you missed a period? If so, take a pregnancy test as a preliminary. If it is negative, and you still have missed your period, you should go into the doctor for a blood test right away. As Prolixin is a class C medication, there is not enough research to know whether it may be harmful during pregnancy, so the sooner you find out if you are pregnant, the better chance your doctor will have to evaluate if another drug would work beneficially in it's place. I know Prolixin has been known to cause false negative, and false positive results, so take a pregnancy test if you have missed your period, and regardless of the result see the doctor for a blood test to know for sure.

There's really no way of knowing for sure. Have you missed a period? If so, take a pregnancy test as a preliminary. If it is negative, and you still have missed your period, you should go into the doctor for a blood test right away. As Prolixin is a class C medication, there is not enough research to know whether it may be harmful during pregnancy, so the sooner you find out if you are pregnant, the better chance your doctor will have to evaluate if another drug would work beneficially in it's place. I know Prolixin has been known to cause false negative, and false positive results, so take a pregnancy test if you have missed your period, and regardless of the result see the doctor for a blood test to know for sure. Try to count back using your last period date to calculate when you would have ovulated to know if it's possible that you may have gotten pregnant within that time frame. Otherwise, a blood test is the only true way you'll be able to find out. Good luck! Answered by Aide Budish 2 years ago.

Does Prolixin cause weight loss and constipation?
Asked by Isaura Domingo 2 years ago.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information.

My mother has been on a mandatory prolixin shot since I was 16. 24 years is too long to be on the same anti psychotic medication. About 15 years ago my mother looked into my eyes and spoke words that killed my soul. She said to me (when we were at a party being thrown by my ex best friend Sally) : "Is this medication going to hurt me in the long run"? I believe that this medication will hurt my mother in the long run, but she once tried to seriously harm me when she secretly switched herself from her mandatory Prolixin shots to Prolixin tablets that she didn't take.

Even though Prolixin is not addicting, the brain may need some time to adjust to Prolixin withdrawal. If your mother stop it too quickly,she may experience shakiness, vomiting, and digestive problems. In order to reduce the chances of Prolixin withdrawal symptoms, your mother healthcare provider may decide to wean you off the medication slowly to avoid severe symptoms. Your mother health-care provider may decide to wean you off Prolixin slowly to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, although this may not be necessary in all situations. Even if your mother is switching to another medication, your mother health-care provider may still recommend gradually stopping the drug.

Okay to use Prolixin for a teen w/ schizophrenia?
For a teen with early onset of schizophrenia (15 yo) and has tried Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel but has not been effective. Is Prolixin a good choice? Asked by Lourie Tufts 2 years ago.

Only a qualified physician who has been treating the teen can make the decision whether it is appropriate/ok or not. Answered by Heather Scarff 2 years ago.

It depends somewhat on what symptoms of Schizophrenia has. Prolixin and Haldol are really good at treating hallucination, delusions, and agitation. The newer meds also treat some of the negative symptoms like isolating. Clozaril would be the usual next step after trying those meds. Prolixin and Haldol do work but they have a high incidence of side effects. Some people can tolerate those side effects with additional meds, some people have a permanent effect called tarditive dyskinesia, even after they start the med. Things to consider: make sure the highest dose was tried on the other meds? is an injectable med needed? Is mood lability a major problem? What are realistic goals for this teen? A mood stabilizer with antipsychotic may be a good choice, like Depakote. If the teen had any response to Risperdal, Risperdal Consta with another antipsychotic, like Clozaril may be a good option. The Consta gives a more stable amount of medicine because it is given as an injection every two weeks. Answered by Tanna Reczek 2 years ago.

I've used all the medicine at one time or other. I've found the medicine Stelazine to be one of the most effective with fewer side effects. Prolixin caused me to have asthma attacks, particularly at night when I was lying down. Everyone is different and their response to the meds are different. If the patient doesn't have asthma Prolixin is certainly worth considering. There is nothing wrong with Prolixin and the price is certainly right compared to Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel. A medicine to consider skipping in the search for a more successful medicine is Haldol. Be very weary of it. One thing that is an absolute with antipsychotics is if the person skips doses they will be worse off and have more symptoms than they were when they were untreated. No antipsychotic works unless it is taken religiously as prescribed. For non-conformers who can't take the med as prescribed there are shots that the doctor can administer once or twice a month which can be life changing. Generally it is a case of skipping doses that makes medicine ineffective as opposed to what is referred to as 'treatment resistant Schizophrenia" which does indeed exist. If the patient does have treatment resistant Schizophrenia the doctor will eventually move the person on to a medicine called Clozaril which will call for monitoring by blood tests. Always wait 6 weeks after being put on medicine before deciding how effective it is and before choosing another. Prolixin doesn't come with a black label warning against it as does Seroquel, Risperdal and Zyprexa. A black label warning is an FDA warning about increased risk of death. Answered by Joanne Podmore 2 years ago.

It sounds logical to me. Prolixin is a drug that has been used to treat symptoms of schizophrenia. It's an older drug.
