Artane is a prescription drug that is licensed for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (and other similar conditions) and extrapyramidal symptoms caused by antipsychotic medications. It works by blocking the effects of acetylcholine, a signaling chemical in the nervous system. The medication comes in tablet and elixir form, and is available in several different strengths. Potential side effects include blurred vision, constipation, and dry mouth.
- Extrapyramidal symptoms (movement or muscle tension problems) caused by antipsychotic medications
