"Mommy, play with me, Mommy!"
She can, now. But only a short time ago Doris never had time for her kids.
A "crazy-clean" housekeeper, she chased dirt and germs all day long. This endless ritual seemed pointless, even to her, yet she couldn't help herself. She became short-tempered with the children... cried for no reason at all... was depressed and indecisive. Because her compulsiveness crowded out normal living, and Doris was on the brink of a serious breakdown, Pacatal was instituted: 25 mg. t.i.d.
Pacatal therapy released this housewife from the grip of her neurosis.
For patients on the brink of psychoses, Pacatal provides more than tranquilization. Pacatal has a "normalizing" action, i.e., patients think and respond emotionally in a more normal manner. To the self-absorbed patient, Pacatal restores the warmth of human fellowship... brings order and clarity to muddled thoughts... helps querulous older people return to the circle of family annd friends.
Pacatal has shown fewer side effects than earlier ataraxics; its major benefits far outweigh occasional transitory reactions. Complete dosage instructions (available on request) should be consulted.
Supplied: 25 and 50 mg. tablets in bottles of 100 and 500.   Also available in 2 cc. ampuls (25 mg./cc.) for parenteral use.
