Perphenazine Drug Information
Trilafon is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (e.g., schizophrenia, manic phase of bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder). This medicine helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It can reduce aggressive behavior and the desire to hurt yourself/others. It may also help to decrease hallucinations (e.g., hearing/seeing things that are not there). Perphenazine is a psychiatric medication (antipsychotic-type) that works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances (e.g., dopamine) in the brain.
There may be a slightly increased risk of serious, possibly fatal side effects (such as heart failure, fast/irregular heartbeat, pneumonia) when Trilafon is used by older adults with dementia. Trilafon is not approved for the treatment of dementia-related behavior problems. Discuss the risks and benefits of Trilafon, as well as other effective and possibly safer treatments for dementia-related behavior problems, with the doctor.
How to Use Trilafon
Take Trilafon by mouth, usually 1-3 times a day with or without food or as directed by your doctor. Dosage of Trilafon is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Your doctor may direct you to take a low dose at first, gradually increasing the dose to lower the chance of side effects such as muscle spasms. Follow your doctor's directions carefully. When you begin treatment, frequent visits to your doctor may be needed to find the best dose for you. Keep all medical/lab appointments. Take Trilafon regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day. Although you may notice some medication effects soon after starting, it may take as much as 4-6 weeks of regular use to see the full benefit. Do not stop taking Trilafon without consulting your doctor. Your condition may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.

Perphenazine may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away.

Since untreated mental/mood problems (such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder) can be a serious condition, do not stop taking Trilafon unless directed by your doctor.
