Navane (Thiothixene)

Photograph of Navane under the microscope.

Navane is currently very useful in relieving psychosis, episodes of mania and paranoia, and acute schizophrenia. It can also be helpful in treating borderline personality disorder. The drug is believed to act by inhibiting the action of dopamine and by correcting an imbalance of nerve impulse transmissions. Side effects include mild drowsiness, orthostatic hypotension, blurred vision, cotton mouth, and nasal congestion.
