Thioridazine is sometimes prescribed to patients who suffer from schizophrenia. This medication decreases abnormal activity in the brain to eliminate hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking and other problems associated with schizophrenia. This drug is not prescribed unless two other antipsychotic medications have failed to resolve symptoms of schizophrenia.

Side Effects/Warnings

This drug can cause a potentially life-threatening irregular heartbeat. If this side effect occurs, sudden death may follow. Patients who have a history of heart disease should not take this medication. Get immediate medical help if you feel dizzy, have a fast or pounding heartbeat or faint while on this medication.

Elderly patients who suffer from age-related psychotic dementia should not take this medication. Conventional antipsychotics such as Thioridazine increases the likelihood that these patients will die of a heart attack or bout of pneumonia.
