Drug Info for pimozide

Pimozide is used to control motor or verbal tics (an uncontrollable need to repeat certain movements or sounds) caused by Tourette's disorder (condition characterized by motor or verbal tics). Pimozide should only be used to treat people who cannot take other medications or who have taken other medications without good results. Pimozide should only be used to treat severe tics that stop the person from learning, working, or performing daily activities. Pimozide is in a class of medications called conventional antipsychotics. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain.

Pimozide is prescribed to patients diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome to treat their condition. Tourette’s syndrome is a neurological disorder that causes repetitive involuntary movements referred to as “tics”. When taken, Pimozide controls these “tics” by decreasing the production of dopamine in the brain. This medication is available as an oral tablet. It is only indicated for the treatment of severe tics.
