Fluphenazine is an antipsychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, and hostility. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Fluphenazine comes as a tablet or oral liquid (elixir and concentrate) to take by mouth. It is usually taken two or three times a day and may be taken with or without food. Continue to take fluphenazine even if you feel well. Do not stop taking fluphenazine without talking to your doctor, especially if you have taken large doses for a long time. Your doctor probably will want to decrease your dose gradually. This drug must be taken regularly for a few weeks before its full effect is felt. Answered by Elene Tabatt 2 years ago.

What are some pills that a doctor might prescribe a person for having paranoia?
Asked by Maris Finnegan 2 years ago.

Of course however you would need to be evaluated and get a proper diagnosis. Typically paranoia, when clinically significant (ie severe) is a symptom of disorders such as schizophrenia, major depressive disorder with psychosis, bipolar disorder, and many other psychiatric, neurological, and other disorders. If you can see a doctor, get a diagnosis, you can be appropriately treated (if that is required). It would be best to see a psychiatrist although a general practitioner may be a good first stop, especially to potentially rule out any physical problems that could be causing your paranoia. However paranoia without other symptoms is uncommon. Typically antipsychotics and in some cases anxiolytics (anti-anxiety) medications are typically used. Antipsychotics include: aripiprazole (Abilify) asenapine (Saphris) chlorpromazine (Thorazine) clozapine (Clozaril, Fazaclo) droperidol (Inapsine) fluphenazine (Prolixin) fluphenazine decanoate (Prolixin D) haloperidol (Haldol) haloperidol decanoate (Haldol D) iloperidone (Fanapt) Reserve loxapine (Loxitane) lurasidone (Latuda) olanzapine (Zyprexa, Zyprexa Zydis) olanzapine pamoate (Zyprexa Relprevv) paliperidone (Invega) paliperidone palmitate (Invega Sustenna) perphenazine (Trilafon) quetiapine (Seroquel) quetiapine (Seroquel XR) risperidone (Risperdal, Risperdal M-Tab) risperidone (Risperdal Consta) thioridazine (Mellaril) thiothixene (Navane) trifluoperazine (Stelazine) ziprasidone (Geodon) Anxiolytics include: alprazolam (Xanax, Xanax XR) chlordiazepoxide (Librium) clonazepam (Klonopin) clorazepate (Tranxene) diazepam (Valium) lorazepam (Ativan) oxazepam (Serax) Answered by Numbers Sherrow 2 years ago.

The top drugs used to treat paranoid personality disorder symptoms are as follows: 1. Anti-anxiety medications: Anxiety causes the paranoid person to suspect others. Anxiety makes the paranoid person believe that the other person has some ulterior motive. This causes distrust. Anxiety also makes the patient display paranoid personality disorder symptoms like being on guard or being overly alert, and expecting someone to take undue advantage of them. Some anti-anxiety medications are benzodiazepines such as Xanax®, Librium®, Klonopin®, Valium®, and Ativan®. Benzodiazepines are used for relieving short-term severe anxiety like the anxiety that is exhibited when a person diagnosed with paranoid personality disorder comes across a stranger. Other anti-anxiety medications are Azapirones, Barbiturates, Hydroxyzine, and Pregabalin. These drugs should be taken strictly under medical supervision and with a prescription. 2. Antipsychotic medications: These medications prevent psychosis symptoms caused by paranoid personality disorder. People exhibiting paranoia have disordered thoughts and delusions due to excessive suspicion. These delusions cause suspicion and the cycle continues. The antipsychotic medication works as a tranquilizer and reduces the psychotic behavior caused by paranoia. Some of the antipsychotic medications used in the treatment of paranoid personality disorder are the first-generation antipsychotics such as butyrophenones, phenothiazines, and thiozanthenes. The second-generation medications that are found to have lower side effects are clozapine, olanzapine, risperidone, zotepine, sertindole, amisulpride, quetiapine, and paliperidone. Aripiprazole and partial agonists of dopamine are some of the third-generation antipsychotics. 3. Antidepressants are the other class of medications used in the treatment of paranoid personality disorder. Excessive suspicion may lead to social isolation and depression. And in some cases, depression may cause paranoia. Antidepression medication helps improve the brain chemicals that transmit messages to the neurons. These are SSRI as discussed earlier, SNRIs (serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors), noradrenergic specific serotonergic antidepressants, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors. These medications are used in paranoid personality disorder treatment only after conducting paranoid personality disorder tests that confirm the diagnosis. These paranoid personality disorder medications have several side effects like nausea, vomiting, headache, disrupted metabolism, and are not recommended for people with heart or lung diseases and kidney diseases. Further, the effects of the medication need to be monitored before changing the dosage. Answered by Misti Winterrowd 2 years ago.

I do not mean to be imply however your appearing like a dumbsh*t. (no offense of direction you dumbsh*t) however your fitting a drug addict. And honestly I suppose your grandmother is utterly badass doing what she does. Paranoid manner to thinking whatever, for your case abusing drugs... I believe the fact that you bought caught with f*cking Marijuana of all bloody matters crosses the road of Paranoia and Factual proof. And honestly, in the event you doubled your doses of medicine in your Acute Social anxiousness and you still suppose you had no outcome? What makes you believe taking a more robust treatment will help you? Perhaps you must try applying your self to do better in college. And in case your simply insecure socially, recall there is no have got to be. Each person is just a little bit insecure, but they conceal it. Should you show that your insecure then your letting men and women know it, by means of keeping your head and staying proper and powerful to yourself, no one would understand and that you could just hold going on along with your lifestyles.. If that doesn't work, then maybe you could have a intellectual situation (retardation,? Maybe not in view that you appear pretty rattling intelligent with this 7 paragraph essay right here.) Edit: Marijuana abusers trying to stop report irritability, sleeplessness, lowered appetite, anxiety, and drug craving, all of which make it difficult to quit. Ultimately smoking whatever will ultimately destroy your physique (the smoke on my own will eventually result in melanoma and you'll reach a factor when you need to stop, but you'll be able to in finding yourself too addicted.) Marijuana most often.. Did you get it from a trustworthy institute or did you get it from bloke on the avenue? What they DONT inform you is that the "Marijuana" you get is laced with toxic chemical compounds so as to get that person extra addicted. So despite the fact that it did support in some bizzare way (which for your case along with your intellectual , has a chance to even motive schitzophrenia with you) why would you continue to do it? I doubt your utilising the marijuana with a view to do higher in institution anyway. And btw, I learn all those web pages, and truthfully I refuse to take any seriousness toward a bloke who compares espresso to Pot. (to not point out I feel that Cigarettes should be unlawful additionally.) You are not able to deny the fact that "advantages" these medications will do for you're going to underweigh the dangers it may intent. Also, from what I read about you trying to sneak capsules, even supposing medicines did support you, i will imagine you overdosing. Then what would you do? Answered by Estelle Kauffmann 2 years ago.

Anti-psychotic medicinal drugs are robust and can have an excessively sedating final result. Many individuals take them at bedtime hence. Geodon is taken two times an afternoon and so you'll be sleepy for the duration of the day with that. You will likely be much less apprehensive and panicky with those too. Mood stabilizers don't influence me as strongly because the anti psychotics do and support extra with temper signs, however now not schizophrenia signs. Answered by Armanda Cleavenger 2 years ago.
