The authors review the accumulated clinical experience with loxapine, with particular emphasis on the more recent literature. Indications, dosage, and pharmacokinetics are discussed for oral and parenteral preparations. Of particular interest is the use of the newer oral or intramuscular concentrate for rapid control of acute psychotic symptoms. Adverse effects and drug interactions appear to be comparable to those seen with other neuroleptics.
