 4  Mania / Hypomania After a few days my head gets foggy and I seem to miss words in sentences or mix things up. I only take it for short term so it's all right. Overheating too. It's not like the new anti-psychotics which take you slowly down, for me it's like hitting a wall. I like that better. It's shorter, less painful and I can get off it all right. I tried the more recent but they are a pain because you must wait for them to kick in. The first time I had loxapine it knocked me out straight. After 5 days or so my bones kind of turn to cement and it's really painful. So I don't take it on a long term, just as a stop! Those are MY symptoms and MY experience but maybe you'll get something different. It's an old anti-psychotic... I've been "on" it since 2006. Now i'm relying on it when needed. So I put down 3 years of usage even though not continuous. F 25 3 years

LOXAPINE SUCCINATE  (LOXAPINE SUCCINATE):  Loxapine is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as schizophrenia). This medicine helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It can reduce aggression and the desire to hurt yourself/others. It may also help to decrease hallucinations (such as hearing/seeing things that are not there). Loxapine is a psychiatric medication (antipsychotic type) that works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances (such as dopamine) in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
