S.K.F. ANNOUNCES ALL-DAY OR ALL-NIGHT 'THORAZINE' THERAPY WITH A SINGLE ORAL DOSE
New 'Thorazine' Spansule capsules offer the proven efficacy of 'Thorazine' plus the advantages of all-day or
all-night therapy with a single oral dose. Your patients will enjoy the convenience of only one or two doses daily.
There is little risk of forgotten doses and consequent medication-free intervals. For the discharged mental patient on
maintenance therapy, 'Thorazine' Spansule capsules will eliminate the trouble and embarrassment of taking tablets at work.
'Thorazine' Spansule capsules help hospital personnel save time in busy wards. Patients who require tablet medication
three or more times daily can obtain the same therapeutic benefits with only one or, at the most, two doses daily.
To give you optimum flexibility in selecting and adjusting dosages for your individual patients, 'Thorazine' Spansule
capsules are available in four strengths: 30 mg. 75 mg., 150 mg. and 200 mg.
Convenient Dosage Form   ~   Thorazine's Usefulness Enhanced   ~   Four Strengths Offered
In many cases, a single dose in the morning will achieve the desired response. When 24-hour therapeutic effect is
desired, the morning dose may be repeated in the late afternoon or evening.
Only one or two doses daily save time in busy wards where three or four "dosage rounds" with tablets were required.
