Clopixol Acuphase 100mg Injection Description

Clopixol Acuphase injection is a prescription medication primarily used to treat schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterised by episodes of hallucina

tions, delusions, and extremely disordered thinking and behaviour. The active ingredient in Clopixol Acuphase injection is Zuclopenthixol. The mode of action of Clopixol Acuphase injection is by blocking the receptor of a specific chemical messenger called dopamine, which improves mood, thoughts, and behaviour. This mechanism helps control psychotic illnesses. Clopixol Acuphase injection is generally given under the supervision of a healthcare provider and should not be self-administered at home. The doctor decides the dose and duration of Clopixol Acuphase injection depending on disease symptoms and the severity of your condition.
