Periciazine (INN; also known as pericyazine (BAN) or propericiazine) is a medication that belongs to the phenothiazine class of typical antipsychotics. It has also been studied in the treatment of opiate dependence.
Pericyazine is a rather sedating and anticholinergic antipsychotic and despite being classed with the typical antipsychotics its risk of extrapyramidal side effects is comparatively low. It has a relatively high risk of causing hyperprolactinaemia and a moderate risk of causing weight gain and orthostatic hypotension.
