psoriasis -- "beneficially influenced" by Thorazine*
The ataractic, tranquilizing effect of 'Thorazine' can do so much to relieve the emotional stress that is so often a complicating or even a causative factor in many somatic conditions.
Reiss(1) observed that 12 out of 15 psoriatic patients "showed a reduction of the number of lesions" after 'Thorazine' therapy of 1 to 4 weeks.
He concluded that "the psoriatic process can be beneficially influenced" by 'Thorazine'.

'Thorazine' should be administered discriminately; and, before prescribing, the physician should be fully conversant with the available literature.
