What drugs may interact with thiothixene?

Donna Hill Howes, RN
Family Practitioner

If you are taking an anticholinergic drug, an anti-Parkinson drug, azelastine nasal spray, dabrafenib, eluxadoline, orphenadrine, paraldehyde, potassium chloride in solid form, or thalidomide, thiothixene can lead to side effects and should be avoided.

If you are taking a central nervous system depressant, topiramate, lithium, methylphenidate, metoclopramide, metyrosine, mirabegron, an opioid, or a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, thiothixene may not be a good option for you.

If you are taking a drug that prolongs the QTc interval, thiothixene can lead to serious side effects.
