Re: Maxime - Questions about Thorazine

In reply to Maxime - Questions about Thorazine, posted by TomG on February 21, 2006, at 9:15:25

Well I was given thorazine to help me sleep. My pdoc told me it wouldn't knock me out, I would just feel calmer and be able to sleep. He was right. But thorazine has a long half life and the calming effect stayed with me. I didn't feel sedated, just blissfully calm. My pdoc said they used thorazine during the war and he said "they gave it to soldiers before an operation. Not to knock them out. But once given the thorazine, the soldiers simply didn't care anymore that they were going to have surgery or notice the pain they were in".

I still take it some nights. I can't take it often because of the lactation problem, but it really makes me feel good. I only take 25 mg.

Hope this helps.


> I keep hearing everyone saying Thorazine and other conventional neuroleptics have a calming action to them. Could you go into more detail about how it calms you?
> The only drugs that I have responded to (Geodon & lithium) have had this profound calming action to them. The problem is both quit working for me. The calm that they gave me was unlike a benzo in that I maintained mental energy and clarity whereas the benzo has me more mellow and sluggish.
> I recently also responded to Symbyax 6mg/25mg for one week. I had the same calming action. That is the lowest dose so I still have some room to move. Anyway I'd just love to hear about Thorazine or what others have to say about low dose conventional AP's.
