Abstract

The brain concentration of fluphenazine was measured in two groups of rats, one treated with fluphenazine and electroconvulsive shock, and the other with fluphenazine only. No difference was found in brain fluphenazine concentration between the two groups. The experiment was replicated with a larger number of rats and the same result was obtained. Electroconvulsive shock does not increase the concentration of fluphenazine in brain tissue.
