Thorazine advertisement, 1955.

"Our most encouraging results have occurred in chronic schizophrenics who were resistant to all psychiatric therapies,
including psychotherapy, intensive shock therapy, or did not maintain improvement after prefrontal lobotomy.
After they were placed on the 'Thorazine' program, 17 of the 27, or 63% of the shock treatment failures improved sufficiently to be discharged home."
