Chlorpromazine - Definition


Definition


Chlorpromazine is a low-potency antipsychotic medication that first appeared in the 1950s. Normally, chlorpromazine is used to treat psychoses (acute or chronic) such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorders (manic-depressive disorder), and even autism. It has a sedative and antihypertensive effect. Prescribed for short periods of time in cases of anxiety, chlorpromazine also counteracts nausea and vomiting.
