Thiothixene is a thioxanthene derivative. Specifically, it is the cis isomer of N,N-dimethyl-9-[3-(4-methyl-l-piperazinyl)-propylidene] thioxanthene-2-sulfonamide.
The thioxanthenes differ from the phenothiazines by the replacement of nitrogen in the central ring with a carbon-linked side chain fixed in space in a rigid structural configuration. An N,N-dimethyl sulfonamide functional group is bonded to the thioxanthene nucleus.
Each capsule for oral administration contains thiothixene, USP 1 mg, 2 mg, 5 mg or 10 mg.
