Reviews for Fluphenazine
For Psychosis: "My 19 year old son had severe hallucinations, delusions and paranoia. He has tried Trilufon, latuda, haldol, riperidone and nothing worked. His psychiatrist put him on Fluphenazine Decanoate Injection 50 mg and all the above issues have finally gone away. This medication does give him a little more anxiety but as time went by it got better. The day of injection is a little harder but stick with it and give it a chance to work. This medication was the life safer for my son"

Prolixin (fluphenazine) for Psychosis: "I was given Prolixin one day & a couple of days later I had a very bad grand mal seizure that wouldn't stop and ended up in intensive care. No apologies from anyone just a $35,000 hospital bill. No admission that this pill caused it. Due to all the abnormalities that can show up on an EEG I was diagnosed with epilepsy and brain damage. I've seen a neurologist since then and I have neither. This pill is dangerous."

For Psychosis: "Works very well side effects are rough. First side effect I had was retention then shaking then I could not sit still but after a little time on medications for side effects the systems got a lot better. Do not like that I have to get it every two weeks but for me it works really good for me."

Prolixin (fluphenazine) for Psychosis: "I've taking Prolixin since the 70's. It has saved my life. I'm scared of the possible side effects, but the trick is for all of the movements episodes I take 2 mg of Artane each time I take the Prolixin it takes all the side effects away. ....try it!"

Prolixin (fluphenazine) for Psychosis: "I needed to get on the lowest dose acceptable because it made me very tired but it controlls the symptoms very well no more paranoia, hallucinations, delusions etc. The best one I've tried so far."

Prolixin (fluphenazine) for Psychosis: "Seems to work on quietening the racing thoughts. Just a bit scary to think of the possible side-effect. Still better than the Metabolic Syndrome that is a by product of the newer medicines."
