Can you tell me the four types of receptors that are blocked by the phenothiazine drugs for psychosis.?
Receptors: Chlorpromazine (the first phenothiazine antipsychotic) blocks more than 4 receptor types: d2, h1, m1, alpha1, alpha2, 5ht2a, and 5ht2c -- and a very small amount of 5ht1a. Other agents also block d2 receptors, but vary in histaminic, muscarinic, and serotonergic receptor effects. These differences relate to differences in side effect profiles. ...Read more

I've read horror stories on chlorpromazine (tardive dyskinesia, chemical lobotomy, death). How likely are those serious side effects on 12.5 - 25mg?
Perplexed: Why are you to take a phenothiazine in this day and age, as the use of this class, other than Haldol and Compazine is almost non-existent currently? Low dosing does mitigate risk and side effects, but most of my colleagues would be loathe to use these ancient meds, and select more modern, more effective, and safer agents. Will refer this to my psychiatric colleagues, also. ...Read more
