Prolixin Decanoate Overview
Prolixin Decanoate is a long-acting form of fluphenazine that is used to treat certain mental/mood problems (chronic schizophrenia). Fluphenazine decanoate is usually used in patients who have benefited from regular doses of short-acting forms of fluphenazine and who may benefit from long-term (maintenance) treatment with less frequent dosing. Fluphenazine belongs to a class of medications called phenothiazines and is also referred to as a neuroleptic. It works by affecting the balance of natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Some of the benefits of continued use of Prolixin Decanoate include reduced episodes of hallucinations, delusions, or bizarre behaviors that occur in patients with schizophrenia. Prolixin Decanoate does not work right away. It may take 1-3 days to notice an effect from Prolixin Decanoate, and up to 4 days to experience the full effect. For severe agitation or other symptoms, use a short-acting medication as directed by your doctor. Prolixin Decanoate is not recommended for use in children under 12 years of age. Also, it should not be used to manage behavioral problems in patients with mental retardation.
Prolixin Decanoate Warnings
There may be a slightly increased risk of serious, possibly fatal side effects (such as heart failure, fast/irregular heartbeat, pneumonia) when Prolixin Decanoate is used by older adults with dementia. Prolixin Decanoate is not approved for the treatment of dementia-related behavior problems. Discuss the risks and benefits of Prolixin Decanoate, as well as other effective and possibly safer treatments for dementia-related behavior problems, with the doctor.

Prolixin Decanoate is given by injection into a muscle (intramuscularly-IM) or beneath the skin (subcutaneously-subQ) by a nurse or doctor.

If any of the information is unclear, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Prolixin Decanoate is usually pale yellow in color. If the liquid becomes any darker than pale yellow, is discolored in any other way, or if particles appear in the liquid, do not use the liquid. Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before measuring and injecting the drug. Clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol. Avoid getting the medication on your skin because allergic reactions (contact dermatitis) may occur. Learn how to store and discard needles and medical supplies safely. Never reuse syringes or needles. Consult your pharmacist for more details. Use Prolixin Decanoate regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Dosage of Prolixin Decanoate is based on your medical condition, past use of other drugs for your condition, and response to therapy. The dose should not be greater than 100 milligrams. Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens.

If you overheat, quickly look for a place to cool down and rest. Get medical help right away if you have a fever that does not go away, mental/mood changes, headache, or dizziness.

If you notice any of these symptoms in your newborn especially during their first month, tell the doctor right away. Since untreated mental/mood problems (such as schizophrenia) can be a serious condition, do not stop taking Prolixin Decanoate unless directed by your doctor.
