Indications for use and contraindications are basically the same as for pimozide. It is most shown as a means for maintenance therapy in patients with low-grade and sluggish schizophrenia.

Assign inside 20-60 mg (sometimes up to 100 mg) every 5 to 7 days (average dose 40-60 mg per week).

Release form: tablets on 0,02 g (20 mg) in a package of 12 pieces.

There is also a sustained-release drug penfluuridol decanoate.
