If drugs are withdrawn, recurrence of symptoms may not become apparent for several weeks or months" (Modecate/fluphenazine; Clopixol/zuclopenthixol)
Zuclopenthixol is available in three major preparations:
As zuclopenthixol decanoate (Clopixol), it is a long acting intramuscular injection. Its main use is as a long acting injection given every two or three weeks to people with schizophrenia who have a poor compliance with medication and suffer frequent relapses of illness. There is some evidence it may be more helpful in managing aggressive behaviour.
As zuclopenthixol acetate (Clopixol, Acuphase, Cisordinol- Acutard), it is a shorter acting intramuscular injection used in the acute sedation of psychotic inpatients. The effect peaks at 4872 hours providing 23 days of sedation.
As zuclopenthixol dihydrochloride (Clopixol), it is a tablet used in the treatment of schizophrenia in those who are compliant with oral medication.
It is also used in the treatment of acute bipolar mania.
