Reviews for Stelazine
For Schizophrenia "My wife used this, initially higher dose and then 1 mg for life, works wonderful till she stop using it and she relapsed. Now she is on another medication, very popular but not for everyone. Will ask Dr. to consider putting her back to stelazine. Yes I do not know why stelazine is not popular now, with a low dose the side effect is almost negligible and the person can resume almost normal life as compared to the side effect of the newer and popular drug."

For Anxiety "Taken alongside Lithium, Quetiapine for bipolar one. This medication is old but very effective against anxiety associated with bipolar disorder. No side effects apart from feeling a little drowsy at times."

For Schizophrenia "Out of all the medications my son uses, this is very helpful. To my surprise this medication is discontinued in the USA and overseas. This is a very old medication and works wonderful to help my son carry out a normal life for himself. Please let us all vote and have this medication back in the pharmacy. Thank you. "

For Anxiety "I take 1mg/daily. So far it is very effective, I tend to be able to be more relaxed and can sleep with clear and peaceful thoughts where I used to be laying in bed 20 minutes thinking too much. But seems not to do much for my social anxiety. Overall, pretty effective."

For Schizophrenia "This medication saved my life. I had allergic reactions to some medications and was afraid that I would never find something to help me."
