Orap Medication Information

A healthcare provider may prescribe Orap® (pimozide) to help treat Tourette syndrome when other treatment has failed or cannot be tolerated. This prescription medication works by controlling motor and verbal tics that are severe enough that they interfere with the person's development or daily life.
 
This medicine comes as tablets that are taken one or more times a day. While many people tolerate this medicine well, some people may experience side effects, such as weakness, sleepiness, and headaches.
 
While it may be an effective treatment, not everyone can use this medication. Information on Orap should be discussed with your healthcare provider before taking it to help avoid potential complications. For example, you may not be able to use this medicine if you are taking certain medications or if you have medical conditions like heart rhythm problems or low electrolytes.
