Chlorpromazine hydrochloride (Thorazine®) is a medication that is licensed for the treatment of several conditions, including nausea or vomiting, schizophrenia, and severe ADHD in children.

Side effects of chlorpromazine tablets may include constipation, blurred vision, drowsiness, and a dry mouth.
