Chlorpromazine disposition in relation to age in children.

Author information

Department of Pharmacology, University of Padua, Italy.


The pharmacokinetics of chlorpromazine after intravenous infusion were studied in 25 children. The pharmacokinetic parameters studied are markedly different from those reported for adults. A clear relationship was demonstrated between age, serum terminal half-life (r = 0.75) and systemic clearance (r = -0.43). It appears that the pharmacokinetics of chlorpromazine are more rapid in children than in adults.
