Chlorprotixene Pharmacodynamics
Chlorprothixene is a neuroleptic, a derivative of thioxanthene. It has antipsychotic, marked sedative and moderate antidepressant effect.
Antipsychotic action of neuroleptics is associated with blockade of dopamine receptors, and possibly with blockade of 5-NT (5-hydroxytryptamine) receptors. In vivo, chlorprotixen has a high affinity for D1 and D2 dopamine receptors. Chlorprotixene also has a high affinity for 5-HT2 receptors, alpha1-adrenoreceptors, histamine (H1) and cholinergic muscarinic receptors. The receptor binding profile of chlorprotixene is very similar to that of clozapine, but it has approximately 10 times higher affinity for dopamine receptors.
Chlorprothixene reduces or eliminates anxiety, obsessions, psychomotor agitation, anxiety, insomnia, as well as hallucinations, delusions and other psychotic symptoms. The very low incidence of extrapyramidal effects (about 1%) and tardive dyskinesia (about 0.05%) indicate that chlorprotixen can be successfully used for maintenance therapy in patients with psychotic disorders
Low doses of chlorprotixene have an antidepressant effect, which makes the drug useful in psychotic disorders characterized by anxiety, depression, and restlessness. Chlorprothixene therapy also reduces the severity of associated psychosomatic symptoms. Chlorprothixene is not addictive, addictive, or tolerant. In addition, Chlorprothixene potentiates the effects of analgesics and has its own analgesic effect as well as antipruritic and antiemetic effects.
