Chlorpromazine should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in an airtight container.
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your chlorpromazine as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Currently, only generic chlorpromazine is available for sale (see Generic Thorazine for more information).
