Artane (Trihexyphenidyl) is used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease such as stiffness, tremors, spasms, and poor muscle control. It is also used to treat and prevent certain muscular conditions due to the side effects of certain psychiatric drugs such as chlorpromazine, fluphenazine, and perphenazine. Artane belongs to a class of drugs known as antimuscarinics. It works by relaxing muscles and nerve impulses that control muscle function.
We currently offer the generic Artane from India also called Bexol by Intas Pharma and from Canada by a different manufacturer.
