Plasma concentrations of thioridazine metabolites and ECG abnormalities.
TLDR
In four of the five patients, abnormal ECG's were found whenever plasma concentrations of the thioridazine ring sulfoxide were elevated, and no relationship could be detected between the appearance of ECG abnormalities and the concentrations of thIORidazine and its other metabolites.
Piperacetazine Versus Thioridazine in the Treatment of Organic Brain Disease: A Controlled Double‐Blind Study

Letter: Fatal aplastic anemia with piperacetazine therapy.
