 5  behavior issues My son is 3 and was having extreme behavioral issues, nightmares, peeing his pants when he got mad, even getting kicked out of his preschool program. I had him evaluated by numbers of therapists, behavioral specialists, mobile therapists, and occupational therapists. He was seeing a therapist at daycare once a week along with a behavior specialist, and nothing seemed to be working, he was getting worse. I finally took him to a psychiatrist who reccomended this medication for bi-polar/ADHD. Within 2 days, his behavior had changed drastically. It is now only 2 weeks later, he is back in his preschool program, doing fantastic, getting smiley faces every day and has gone a whole week without one time out!!! He no longer pees his pants, he is easier to talk to and reason with, he listens, pays attention, and I am even getting compliments on his good behavior from the daycare. This medicine hasn't made him like a zombie, or made him lose his appetite. He is a much happier little boy, My life has changed drastically since putting him on this medicine. I felt bad putting him on it at first because he's only 3, but I couldn't be happier with the results. F 26 2 weeks

CHLORPROMAZINE HCL  (CHLORPROMAZINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as schizophrenia, psychotic disorders, manic phase of bipolar disorder, severe behavioral problems in children). Chlorpromazine helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It can reduce aggressive behavior and the desire to hurt yourself/others. It may also help to decrease hallucinations (hearing/seeing things that are not there). Chlorpromazine is a psychiatric medication that belongs to the class of drugs called phenothiazine antipsychotics. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain. Chlorpromazine is also used to control nausea/vomiting, relieve prolonged hiccups, relieve restlessness/anxiety before surgery, and help treat tetanus.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
