An antipsychotic drug used to treat schizophrenic patients (see SCHIZOPHRENIA) who have not responded to other treatments or who have suffered serious side-effects from them. Improvement is gradual and it may be several weeks before severe symptoms are relieved. The drug can cause AGRANULOCYTOSIS and so it is given under close hospital supervision.
