Effect of chlorpromazine on the cerebral circulation


Intravenous injection of chlorpromazine in a dose of 2–3 mg/kg lowered the tone of the cerebral vessels and the general arterial pressure. The volume velocity of the cerebral blood flow increased if the arterial pressure remained stabilized or fell only moderately. In severe hypotension induced by chlorpromazine the cerebral blood flow decreased.
