Ethopropazine is prescribed to alleviate symptoms of Parkinson’s disease or movement disorders (extrapyramidal signs-EPS) resulting from the adverse effects of specific psychiatric medications. Ethopropazine falls under the category of medications known as phenothiazines. Its mechanism involves blocking a particular natural substance (acetylcholine), thereby reducing symptoms such as muscle stiffness/spasms, tremors, and excessive saliva production.

Uses and Dosage

Your doctor may initially prescribe a low dose and then gradually increase it to determine the most effective dosage for you. The prescribed amount depends on your medical condition and how you respond to the treatment.
