Chlorpromazine Canon Pharmacodynamics
Chlorpromazine is a dimethylamine derivative of phenothiazine. Although the exact mechanism of chlorpromazine’s therapeutic effects is unknown, its main effect is neuroleptic, resulting in a reduction of psychotic symptoms. Chlorpromazine has sedative and antiemetic effects. It blocks alpha-adrenoreceptors and has a weak anticholinergic effect. Chlorpromazine is a dopamine antagonist and stimulates prolactin release. Chlorpromazine blocks serotonin receptors and has weak antihistamine properties. It inhibits the thermoregulation center, which impairs the body’s resistance to equalizing body temperature with ambient temperature.
