Clopixol Depot is an antipsychotic (antipsychotic) derivative of thioxanthene.
Clopixol has a pronounced antipsychotic and specific inhibitory effect. Clopixol may also have a transient, dose-dependent sedation, whose rapid development at the beginning of therapy (before the onset of antipsychotic action) is an advantage in the treatment of acute and subacute psychoses.
Tolerance to the nonspecific sedative effect of the drug occurs rapidly.
Due to its specific inhibitory effect, the drug is especially indicated for agitation, anxiety, hostility or aggressiveness.
The therapeutic effect of clopixol depot is significantly more prolonged compared with clopixol. This allows you to confidently conduct continuous antipsychotic treatment with clopixol depot, which is especially important for patients who do not perform medical appointments.
Clopixol Depot prevents the development of frequent relapses associated with the arbitrary interruption of oral medication by patients.
