I've got hold of the manufacturers (Lundbeck) and asked them for information re: the mechanism of flupenthixol in depression/anxiety. Let's hope they know!? I'll post any answers I get out of them. I've got quite a few patients who are using it with great effect but I feel uncomfortable recommending medications when I don't adequately understand their mechanism of action. The same goes for low dose sulpiride (Dogmatil).
> Hi,
> I don't know how to start but your questions attracted my attention. I have been consuming fluanxol (1mg) for the last 8 years with great results. But the problem is I can't seem to stop it. I have asked Lundbeck and a lot of physicians but no one seemed to be able to offer me a satisfactory answer. My question is - is it OK to consume fluanxol for a lifetime??? I had mild depression since 1992 and have been taking fluanxol (1mg) for the last 8-9 years. I attempted to quit the medication many times but the withdrawal is painful. Please shed some light on my predicament. Thanks

I want to do this as gently as possible, but I have to tell you
that the mechanism of action of most antidepressants is "poorly understood"
i.e., not understood. If this makes you uncomfortable, you
might be better off not taking them, but if nothing else that
you've tried has helped, you might be better off taking
them If you prescribe these drugs to others, you might
want to include this information.

With a full understanding of this, I have chosen to take
these drugs for the past 20 years. The consequences of
not taking them were too great.
