Loxapine side effects

I just read the common side effects for loxapine. One of them is puffiness in the face. I can’t have a face any puffier! Who has taken this drug? I’m afraid to take it now!

The only side effect I experienced was sedation. It was pretty bad, even at 10mg dose.

Are you taking it 3x per day @pianogal ?

I took it, and too only had the sedation. Seemed to get better with time.

I couldn’t get through it. I took it for about 3 months at 20mg x3 daily. Everytime I took a dose, I would sleep until the next dose. It always hit me pretty hard.

Sorry you had that experience. I was on 20mg 2x per day. The morning dose was rough for a while whenever I actually had stuff to do in the morning.

@Mr.Dre I don’t know yet. I pick up my meds tomorrow. I’ll see what it says on the bottle.
