Artane alters unusual nerve impulses and relaxes stiff muscles.
Use Artane as directed by your doctor.
Take Artane by mouth before or after meals.
If Artane tends to dry your mouth excessively, it may be better to take it before meals, unless it causes nausea. If taken after meals, thirst can be improved by sucking hard sugarless candy, chewing gum, or drinking water.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Artane.
Drug Class and Mechanism
