Profenamine Indication

For use in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and also used to control severe reactions to certain medicines such as reserpine.

Profenamine Pharmacology

Ethopropazine, a phenothiazine and antidyskinetic, is used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. By improving muscle control and reducing stiffness, this drug permits more normal movements of the body as the disease symptoms are reduced. It is also used to control severe reactions to certain medicines such as reserpine, phenothiazines, chlorprothixene, thiothixene, loxapine, and haloperidol. Unlike other NMDA antagonists, ethopropazine — because of its anticholinergic action — is largely devoid of neurotoxic side effects. Ethopropazine also has a slight antihistaminic and local anesthetic effect.

Profenamine Absorption

Well-absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.

Profenamine side effects and Toxicity

Symptoms of overdose include severe clumsiness or unsteadiness, severe drowsiness, severe dryness of mouth, nose, or throat, fast heartbeat, shortness of breath or troubled breathing, and warmth, dryness, and flushing of skin.
