No: Thiothixene is an older (introduced in the '60s) antipsychotic medication used for the treatment of schizophrenia. It does not have any euphoric properties. Some people will abuse anything, though, and because this medication can be sedating, there's probably someone out there who's abused it. It is not a controlled medication, and i've never even heard of a patient "drug seeking" an antipsychotic.
