A saboteur who deserves help
Mental patients who fear or resent medication throw away thousands of dollars in drugs each year.   Unhelped by drug therapy, they often pose a difficult management problem. And they sabotage the progress of other patients by spreading fears and multiplying conflicts on the hospital ward.   You can virtually assure these patients the benefit of drug therapy with 'Thorazine' Concentrate.   Easy to administer, 'Thorazine' Concentrate cannot be "cheeked" and disposed of later; it provides dependable control of agitation and hyperactivity.   You can help him with THORAZINE® brand of chlorpromazine CONCENTRATE
