Why is this medication prescribed?

Trihexyphenidyl is used along with other medications to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD; a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance) and to control extrapyramidal symptoms (tremor, slurred speech) caused by certain medications. Trihexyphenidyl is in a class of medications called antimuscarinics. It works by relaxing muscles and nerve impulses that control the function of muscles.

How should this medicine be used?

Trihexyphenidyl comes as a tablet and elixir (liquid) to take by mouth. It usually is taken with or without food three or four times a day. Take trihexyphenidyl at around the same time(s) every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take trihexyphenidyl exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Do not stop taking trihexyphenidyl suddenly without talking with your doctor, especially if you are also taking other medications. Sudden stoppage can cause symptoms of Parkinson's disease to return.
