Chlorpromazine HCl is a 10-(γ-dimethylaminopropyl)-2-chlorophenothiazine HCl introduced in France and England and, more recently, in the United States under the trade name Thorazine, for the treatment of psychiatric disorders, especially agitated and depressed states, acute and chronic alcoholism, nausea and vomiting of diverse etiology, and hiccups, and for the relief of pain as a potentiator of opiates, hypnotics and anesthetics.1-7 Its use has increased tremendously in the last few months, particularly as a tranquilizer. As of March 1, 1955, it was estimated that Thorazine has been used in the United States in over 2,000,000 patients.7
