CLOPIXOL (Zuclopenthixol, Cisordinol, Acuphase) is an antipsychotic that acts on the specific pathways in the brain and helps to correct chemical imbalance that cause different disorders. It works by blocking dopamine receptors in the brain thus preventing the overactivity of dopamine. Dopamine is a natural compound involved in neurotransmission between brain cells. The overactivity of dopamine causes psychotic diseases, particularly schizophrenia. Clopixol is used to treat psychotic diseases, improves disturbed thoughts, produces a calming effect and controls aggression, delusions and hallucinations.
