Fluanxol, also known as flupentixol, is a medication used in the treatment of various mental and emotional conditions, primarily schizophrenia and depression. 

It belongs to the family of medications known as thioxanthenes and is classified as a typical antipsychotic. 

Fluanxol is thought to work by affecting nerve pathways in certain areas of the brain to help correct certain chemical imbalances that cause the symptoms of schizophrenia and depression.

Fluanxol can cause drowsiness and sedation. Be careful driving or operating machinery until you know how Fluanxol affects you.

Fluanxol can worsen symptoms of depression, such as suicidal thoughts or feelings. If you experience these symptoms, be sure to tell your healthcare provider right away.

Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, seizures, or a history of TD or NMS.

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medications you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Fluanxol can interact with other medications, so it is important to tell your healthcare provider about everything you are taking.

Tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Fluanxol can cause problems in newborns if it is taken during pregnancy.

Tell your healthcare provider if you are breastfeeding. It is not known if Fluanxol passes into breast milk, but it is possible that it could harm a nursing baby.

Fluanxol can cause tardive dyskinesia (TD), a condition that causes involuntary, repetitive movements of the face, tongue, or other parts of the body. The risk of TD increases with the length of time you take Fluanxol and the dose you take.

Fluanxol can cause neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), a rare but life-threatening condition that can cause fever, muscle stiffness, confusion, and other symptoms.

Fluanxol can cause low blood pressure, especially when you first start taking it or when you increase the dose. This can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting.
