Action/Kinetics: High incidence of extrapyramidal symptoms and a low incidence of sedation, anticholinergic effects, antiemetic effects, and orthostatic hypotension. The enanthate and decanoate esters dramatically increase the duration of action. Decanoate: Onset, 24-72 hr; peak plasma levels, 24-48 hr; t 1/2 (approximate), 14 days; duration, up to 4 weeks. Enanthate: Onset, 24-72 hr; peak plasma levels, 48-72 hr; t 1/2 (approximate), 3.6 days; duration, 1-3 weeks.  Fluphenazine hydrochloride can be cautiously administered to clients with known hypersensitivity to other phenothiazines.  Fluphenazine enanthate may replace fluphenazine hydrochloride if desired response occurs with hypersensitivity reaction to fluphenazine.

Uses: Psychotic disorders. Adjunct to tricyclic antidepressants for chronic pain states (e.g., diabetic neuropathy, and clients trying to withdraw from narcotics).
