In brief: Fluphenazine

Prolixin (fluphenazine) commonly causes dry mouth/eyes, feeling sleepy, difficulty urinating.
The rarer, but significant motor side effects of Prolixin (fluphenazine) include severe painful muscle cramps (emergency), tremor, a sensation of having to move (akathisia), and involuntary movements called tardive dyskinesia. Talk to your doctor should any of these occur.
