Pimozide Dosage

General Information on Taking Pimozide

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with pimozide include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of a tablet. It is usually taken by mouth once or more times a day.
 
  • When taken once a day, pimozide should be taken at bedtime due to its tendency to cause drowsiness.
 
  • Pimozide can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
 
  • You should avoid drinking grapefruit juice during treatment.
 
  • Try to take this medication at the same time each day to keep an even level of it in your bloodstream.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not stop taking pimozide even if you feel better, as doing so may cause your tics to return.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your pimozide dosage, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
