Perazine (Taxilan) is a moderate-potency typical antipsychotic of the phenothiazine class. It is quite similar to chlorpromazine, and acts as a dopamine antagonist. A 2014 systematic review compared it with other antipsychotic drugs:

Perazine versus other antipsychotic drugs for schizophrenia[1]
The number, size and reporting of randomized controlled perazine trials are insufficient to present firm conclusions about the properties of this antipsychotic. It is possible that perazine is associated with a similar risk of extrapyramidal side effects as some atypical antipsychotics but this is based on few comparisons of limited power.[1]
