A question about stelazine for schizophrenia?
yes, seroquel made him very aggressive.As i said he has taken them all. Thanks Asked by Wei Gregston 2 years ago.

Has anyone ever taken stelazine? It is an older antipsychotic and my sister works at a psy. unit at a hospital in virginia, she says they are using this instead of the new ones when the newer drugs don't work. And using it at low dosages so the side affects will be mild. Just wanted to know as my son takes zyprexa and he still hears voices and has a hard time with his cognitive thinking, also big weight gain and he has done been on all the other new drugs over the past 12 years. I have looked up stelazine and the side affects are no different than the zyprexa except the weight gain, i know there is a slight chance of tarkive diskeniesia, (bad spelling) but at a low dosage it's not risky. I would much like to hear from some one that has actually taken this med. thanks Answered by Luana Funderbunk 2 years ago.

Hi, I have not taken this med, but I too worked on a child/adolescent psychiatry unit for 13 years as a nurse. The problem with the older medications is the higher incident of side effects, especially the severe ones such as neuroleptic malignancy syndrome and tardive diskinesia. Weight gain tends to be across the board with anti-psychotics. There is a medication that has shown alot of promise if he has a true diagnosis of schizophrenia, it is clozaril. However, it must be closely monitored with checks on blood levels. Stelazine,& thorazine tend to be meds we used for temporary reduction of aggitation or hallucinations. Overall, if it works for your son, then you have found the right "fit". My experience was that no one is the same and it often takes many years to find the right combo of meds. And as you seem to have experienced, it may work for a while, then need to be revisited. It often is a lifelong battle of changing meds often to try and find the right balance. Hope this helps. God bless you in your journey. Answered by Wai Echard 2 years ago.

I never heard or taking stelazine.. but I have taking zyprexa It make me dizzy and confused about thing.. My son is schizophrenia the pychatric put my son on abilify twice aday that new medcine on market..My son was on seroquel too it make him voilent & agression & see thing that are not there..I make the doctor stop seroquel..what i learn about medcine abilify my son need more abilify in during the day..before he was just take it at night..my son don't hear no voice no more.. Answered by Tameka Pylvainen 2 years ago.

The older anti psychotics are just as healthy as the newer ones. whatever helps is best. Answered by Khalilah Misner 2 years ago.


Are anxiety meds anti depressants? (Stelazine)?
I asked a similar question before but didn't get the answer I was kind of looking for. Any info would be good thanks Asked by Isabelle Dunigan 2 years ago.

Short answer, no. But some antidepressants will help lower anxiety. Stelazine (trifluoperazine) is an antipsychotic of the phenothiazine group. It is helpful for symptoms of schizophrenia, agitation, severe nausea and vomiting, severe anxiety and behavioral problems. It may also reverse addiction to opioids. But it is worthless as an antidepressant - that's not what it does, quite the opposite since, for one thing, it inhibits dopamine. Answered by Roland Lotze 2 years ago.

Antidepressants also treat anxiety over the long term. For acute episodes benzodiazepines such as Xanax work well. Stelazine is an anti-psychotic, according to what I found on the internet. Although not usually prescribed for anxiety alone, these type of drugs often do have a benefit of easing anxiety because they are essentially tranquilizers. I am on Zyprexa and when I tried to get off of it I had bad anxiety and was unable to sleep, so I am back on it although I am not psychotic at the moment. Answered by Valentin Zollner 2 years ago.


Any luck with Stelazine (Trifluoperazine)?
I'm on a low dose of 5mg. Can you tell me if it worked for you? Thanks. Asked by Daniele Sae 2 years ago.

I took Stelazine 45 ears ago and it had alot of side effects. I am surprised they are still giving this. Your doctor must be whatr they call OLD SCHOOL. Answered by Annalisa Walstrum 2 years ago.


What tablets from the doctor will knock me out so I can get some sleep?
Would stelazine work? Asked by Monte Doelger 2 years ago.

I made a comment to you earlier, but I have a little more input. Stelazine is a hardcore, heavy duty tranquilizer. Depending on how much you are prescribed it can knock you cold. Rarely, it actually causes insomnia because everyone has a different reaction to medication, but it is far more common for you to get sleepy and sedated. This is used mostly for schizophrenia, but also for very severe anxiety in some cases, but in 2009 it is rare that a doctor would prescribe stelazine, at least in my country. In some parts of the world it is more common, but most people stay away from it because it has a laundry list of serious side effects. When you have severe anxiety, which I gather you have, the alleviation of the anxiety will make it easier for you to calm down, which will indirectly help you fall asleep. For sleeping pills, it is hard to find something that works well for everybody and works for extended periods of time. Out of all the different types of sleeping medications, one that is very effective is a drug called doxylamine succinate. In my country (USA) it is over the counter and you don't even need a doctor to get it. You can also try diphenhydramine which is called benedryl in America and sold as Sleepeezee in the UK. That one is over the counter as well. These drugs are what I personally use and I have tried the most potent barbiturate and benzodiazepine sleeping pills you can get. The one sure fire way to find out if the stelazine is going to help is to try it, but I don't think you are going to find many people on this forum with personal experience using stelazine because it just isn't that common anymore. Answered by Laverna Hanback 2 years ago.

Try Rozerem. Answered by Coleen Gogocha 2 years ago.


My mom is forcing me to take stelazine?
i have to take 5mg Asked by Alysa Trenh 2 years ago.

im 16 years old and we went to a psychiatrist yesterday. he only talked to me for about 5 minutes he prescribed stelazine already. However, he talked to my mom privately for about half an h our and I seriously believe she made up stories about me because there's no way he could prescribe something after talking to me for 5 minutes. i dont like the man either, he treated me like a zombie and didnt even listen to my opinions only my mom. he also talked to us privately which is very fishy. my mom bought them at safeway today and she says i have to take them she said if I dont take them she can call the hospital and they will force it into me. i read up on stelazine and apparently its a hardcore drug for very severe anxiety and schizophrenia. I dont even have that. I only told my doctor I was having some anxiety during class, and I seriously think my mom exaggerated to that psychiatrist. Both of them treat me like a zombie and don't listen to what I have to say. Apparently an ambulance is coming in a little while to pick me up. What should I do? I dont want this drug inside of me. i honestly dont think I need them. im pretty sure my anxiety is caused by my dysfunctional and abusive family not a chemical imbalance in my brain. I dont want any chemicals going into me. what should I do? Answered by Dung Riccitelli 2 years ago.

Please don't worry about the ambulance. This will give you alone the opportunity to discuss your symptoms with a psychiatrist. If you only suffer with Anxiety he will make that diagnosis and will not allow you to take the Stelazine. That is a very strong medication that is usually reserved for nursing home patients whose serious mental illness can't be controlled with other medications or for psychiatric hospitals for patients whose symptoms can't be controlled. It looks like you have been done a great injustice and if what you say about your anxiety it correct you won't have to take it. But you must be assertive if you are going to have to work against what your mother has said to the other psychiatrist. Assertive but calm. Answered by Rayford Prutt 2 years ago.

interesting scenario. May i suggest you consider the specific dosage prescribed for you before making a final decison about the situation ?. do your research with that in mind, and remember to not blindly trust any single website's info. Answered by Malcolm Leffew 2 years ago.

Now in case you have been being abused you will possibly desire to pass to the police and checklist the abuse. yet turning out to be up in a dysfunctional kin is tough luck and you will discover very few in positions of authority that gets up against your mum and what she believes is the miraculous for you. suitable of luck, in spite of comes out of this...

I feel weakness in my legs.Can I start cycling or will my muscles grow weaker?I have also become fat. Asked by Trenton Orpen 2 years ago.

the weakness is a side effect of stelazine. you can cycle, but do it when you feel your best. it would be good for you to do something, but watch for dizziness or other effects. Answered by Kecia Brownell 2 years ago.


How long does it take for stelazine to work?

Can someone overdose on stelazine?
This is not for me. My roommate was perscribed this and has tried killing himself before. Is there a chance that if he takes too much of this drug would he end up killing hinself? I have tried to look this up on the Internet, but have come up empty. Asked by Talitha Shamp 2 years ago.

Yes you can, check "stelazine overdose" on google. Otherwise, anything in excess will kill you. Answered by Neely Swarner 2 years ago.


Has anyone ever used stelazine and what for? Does it work?
Asked by Jonie Mccornack 2 years ago.

I used it for many years for Bi Polar disorder. Then I changed to Zyprexa. The difference was astounding. In favor of the Zyprexa I'm afraid. I was much more productive in therapy within a week. Stelazine seems to work best in people who have very little personality disturbance, which I had. Answered by Jill Lage 2 years ago.

Yea it works. Be careful when you use it though. Answered by Garret Coombe 2 years ago.

I made a comment to you earlier, but I have a little more input. Stelazine is a hardcore, heavy duty tranquilizer. Depending on how much you are prescribed it can knock you cold. Rarely, it actually causes insomnia because everyone has a different reaction to medication, but it is far more common for you to get sleepy and sedated. This is used mostly for schizophrenia, but also for very severe anxiety in some cases, but in 2009 it is rare that a doctor would prescribe stelazine, at least in my country. In some parts of the world it is more common, but most people stay away from it because it has a laundry list of serious side effects. When you have severe anxiety, which I gather you have, the alleviation of the anxiety will make it easier for you to calm down, which will indirectly help you fall asleep. For sleeping pills, it is hard to find something that works well for everybody and works for extended periods of time. Out of all the different types of sleeping medications, one that is very effective is a drug called doxylamine succinate. In my country (USA) it is over the counter and you don't even need a doctor to get it. You can also try diphenhydramine which is called benedryl in America and sold as Sleepeezee in the UK. That one is over the counter as well. These drugs are what I personally use and I have tried the most potent barbiturate and benzodiazepine sleeping pills you can get. The one sure fire way to find out if the stelazine is going to help is to try it, but I don't think you are going to find many people on this forum with personal experience using stelazine because it just isn't that common anymore.

My mom is forcing me to take stelazine?
i have to take 5mg Asked by Rachal Faulkingham 2 years ago.

im 16 years old and we went to a psychiatrist yesterday. he only talked to me for about 5 minutes he prescribed stelazine already. However, he talked to my mom privately for about half an h our and I seriously believe she made up stories about me because there's no way he could prescribe something after talking to me for 5 minutes. i dont like the man either, he treated me like a zombie and didnt even listen to my opinions only my mom. he also talked to us privately which is very fishy. my mom bought them at safeway today and she says i have to take them she said if I dont take them she can call the hospital and they will force it into me. i read up on stelazine and apparently its a hardcore drug for very severe anxiety and schizophrenia. I dont even have that. I only told my doctor I was having some anxiety during class, and I seriously think my mom exaggerated to that psychiatrist. Both of them treat me like a zombie and don't listen to what I have to say. Apparently an ambulance is coming in a little while to pick me up. What should I do? I dont want this drug inside of me. i honestly dont think I need them. im pretty sure my anxiety is caused by my dysfunctional and abusive family not a chemical imbalance in my brain. I dont want any chemicals going into me. what should I do? Answered by Holly Keith 2 years ago.

Please don't worry about the ambulance. This will give you alone the opportunity to discuss your symptoms with a psychiatrist. If you only suffer with Anxiety he will make that diagnosis and will not allow you to take the Stelazine. That is a very strong medication that is usually reserved for nursing home patients whose serious mental illness can't be controlled with other medications or for psychiatric hospitals for patients whose symptoms can't be controlled. It looks like you have been done a great injustice and if what you say about your anxiety it correct you won't have to take it. But you must be assertive if you are going to have to work against what your mother has said to the other psychiatrist. Assertive but calm. Answered by Suzan Molon 2 years ago.

Has anyone ever used stelazine and what for? Does it work?
Asked by Lon Shettle 2 years ago.

I used it for many years for Bi Polar disorder. Then I changed to Zyprexa. The difference was astounding. In favor of the Zyprexa I'm afraid. I was much more productive in therapy within a week. Stelazine seems to work best in people who have very little personality disturbance, which I had. Answered by Rudy Sandhu 2 years ago.

A question about stelazine for schizophrenia?
yes, seroquel made him very aggressive.As i said he has taken them all. Thanks Asked by Catherine Figuerda 2 years ago.

Has anyone ever taken stelazine? It is an older antipsychotic and my sister works at a psy. unit at a hospital in virginia, she says they are using this instead of the new ones when the newer drugs don't work. And using it at low dosages so the side affects will be mild. Just wanted to know as my son takes zyprexa and he still hears voices and has a hard time with his cognitive thinking, also big weight gain and he has done been on all the other new drugs over the past 12 years. I have looked up stelazine and the side affects are no different than the zyprexa except the weight gain, i know there is a slight chance of tarkive diskeniesia, (bad spelling) but at a low dosage it's not risky. I would much like to hear from some one that has actually taken this med. thanks Answered by Horace Zickler 2 years ago.

Hi, I have not taken this med, but I too worked on a child/adolescent psychiatry unit for 13 years as a nurse. The problem with the older medications is the higher incident of side effects, especially the severe ones such as neuroleptic malignancy syndrome and tardive diskinesia. Weight gain tends to be across the board with anti-psychotics. There is a medication that has shown alot of promise if he has a true diagnosis of schizophrenia, it is clozaril. However, it must be closely monitored with checks on blood levels. Stelazine,& thorazine tend to be meds we used for temporary reduction of aggitation or hallucinations. Overall, if it works for your son, then you have found the right "fit". My experience was that no one is the same and it often takes many years to find the right combo of meds. And as you seem to have experienced, it may work for a while, then need to be revisited. It often is a lifelong battle of changing meds often to try and find the right balance. Hope this helps. God bless you in your journey. Answered by Rory Stych 2 years ago.

Are anxiety meds anti depressants? (Stelazine)?
I asked a similar question before but didn't get the answer I was kind of looking for. Any info would be good thanks Asked by Laverna Yuan 2 years ago.

Short answer, no. But some antidepressants will help lower anxiety. Stelazine (trifluoperazine) is an antipsychotic of the phenothiazine group. It is helpful for symptoms of schizophrenia, agitation, severe nausea and vomiting, severe anxiety and behavioral problems. It may also reverse addiction to opioids. But it is worthless as an antidepressant - that's not what it does, quite the opposite since, for one thing, it inhibits dopamine. Answered by Oralia Flander 2 years ago.

Antidepressants also treat anxiety over the long term. For acute episodes benzodiazepines such as Xanax work well. Stelazine is an anti-psychotic, according to what I found on the internet. Although not usually prescribed for anxiety alone, these type of drugs often do have a benefit of easing anxiety because they are essentially tranquilizers. I am on Zyprexa and when I tried to get off of it I had bad anxiety and was unable to sleep, so I am back on it although I am not psychotic at the moment. Answered by Wesley Conelly 2 years ago.

Out of all the different types of sleeping medications, one that is very effective is a drug called doxylamine succinate. In my country (USA) it is over the counter and you don't even need a doctor to get it. You can also try diphenhydramine which is called benedryl in America and sold as Sleepeezee in the UK. That one is over the counter as well. These drugs are what I personally use and I have tried the most potent barbiturate and benzodiazepine sleeping pills you can get. The one sure fire way to find out if the stelazine is going to help is to try it, but I don't think you are going to find many people on this forum with personal experience using stelazine because it just isn't that common anymore.

My mom is forcing me to take stelazine?
i have to take 5mg Asked by Carmelina Desvergnes 2 years ago.

im 16 years old and we went to a psychiatrist yesterday. he only talked to me for about 5 minutes he prescribed stelazine already. However, he talked to my mom privately for about half an h our and I seriously believe she made up stories about me because there's no way he could prescribe something after talking to me for 5 minutes. i dont like the man either, he treated me like a zombie and didnt even listen to my opinions only my mom. he also talked to us privately which is very fishy. my mom bought them at safeway today and she says i have to take them she said if I dont take them she can call the hospital and they will force it into me. i read up on stelazine and apparently its a hardcore drug for very severe anxiety and schizophrenia. I dont even have that. I only told my doctor I was having some anxiety during class, and I seriously think my mom exaggerated to that psychiatrist. Both of them treat me like a zombie and don't listen to what I have to say. Apparently an ambulance is coming in a little while to pick me up. What should I do? I dont want this drug inside of me. i honestly dont think I need them. im pretty sure my anxiety is caused by my dysfunctional and abusive family not a chemical imbalance in my brain. I dont want any chemicals going into me. what should I do? Answered by Delma Zaiser 2 years ago.

Please don't worry about the ambulance. This will give you alone the opportunity to discuss your symptoms with a psychiatrist. If you only suffer with Anxiety he will make that diagnosis and will not allow you to take the Stelazine. That is a very strong medication that is usually reserved for nursing home patients whose serious mental illness can't be controlled with other medications or for psychiatric hospitals for patients whose symptoms can't be controlled. It looks like you have been done a great injustice and if what you say about your anxiety it correct you won't have to take it. But you must be assertive if you are going to have to work against what your mother has said to the other psychiatrist. Assertive but calm. Answered by Hettie Hile 2 years ago.

interesting scenario. May i suggest you consider the specific dosage prescribed for you before making a final decison about the situation ?. do your research with that in mind, and remember to not blindly trust any single website's info. Answered by Jerry Narr 2 years ago.

Has anyone ever used stelazine and what for? Does it work?
Asked by Karry Covarrubio 2 years ago.

I used it for many years for Bi Polar disorder. Then I changed to Zyprexa. The difference was astounding. In favor of the Zyprexa I'm afraid. I was much more productive in therapy within a week. Stelazine seems to work best in people who have very little personality disturbance, which I had. Answered by Hae Kreisberg 2 years ago.

Yea it works. Be careful when you use it though. Answered by Melda Hamson 2 years ago.
