Summary of Clinical Use
Perphenazine is an antipsychotic used to treat schizophrenia. Also used for the management of severe nausea and vomiting in adults.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Antipsychotic action arises from antagonism of neuronal dopamine D1/D2 receptors. But also has affinity for 5-HT2A , D3, D4 and histamine H1 receptors. Antagonism of dopamine D2 receptors in the vomiting centre and chemoreceptor trigger zone (CTZ) leads to the antiemetic effect of this drug.
