What is Bexol (Trihexyphenidyl) used for?
Bexol (Trihexyphenidyl) is prescribed to treat and manage symptoms associated with Parkinson`s disease. The medication operates by preventing unusual nerve impulses in the muscles to prevent symptoms associated with this condition including tremors, stiff movements, or difficulty walking. This action may also make it useful for treating involuntary or abnormal muscle movements caused by other medications. Your doctor may prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Bexol (Trihexyphenidyl)?
Bexol (Trihexyphenidyl) is typically administered three to four times each day at a dosage of one tablet, but your particular instructions will be determined by your doctor based on your age, weight, current health, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a full cup of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a meal or snack is suggested before use if you experience nausea. Avoid changing the form of the medication by splitting or crushing the tablets as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents. Ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
