Hi
I'm looking for some advice on Largactil(R).  My husband has been taking EfexorXR for about 18months and has now also been put on Largactil(R).  I'd love to hear from anyone who has taken this drug - good and bad.  I'm living in hope hoping this helps him as I just want to see him happy again.  By the way this is a great site.  Thanks in advance.  Beth

Hi Beth..Glad you found us here at HW.

Wondering if you have tried looking up Largactil on the net? There is usually heaps of info. and hopefully someone will post soon with their own personal experience with it too :-) So nice to hear that you are so supportive and caring about your husband while he is going thru this rough patch - takes a special person to be able to do this - 'gold medal' material Beth :)

Look forward to hearing of your progress.

Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell,

I have never taken Largactil before either but searching on the internet is a pretty good idea. I know a little about it though. I know that one of the side effects is low blood pressure and that is something you should really keep an eye on. The other side effects are pretty common to most pills, potions and lotions... E.g. Constipation, Drowsiness, Dry mouth etc... If you search on the internet you might also want to look for the name CHLORPROMAZINE. That is what we call it here in the UK.

Best Wishes

Darren

Thank you all so much.  You all run a fabulous web site here I think it is the best!!!    I have searched the net and found some info but thought hearing from someone that has had success or failure with it would help.   I am hanging in there but this has been a very difficult time for all of us especially my husband.  He walked out 6 weeks ago when we had problems with our 17year old son who he is now disowning.  He does turn up now and again - stays the night to get a good sleep then I don't see him for another week.  At first I was devastated but now realise his depression is severe as he is not himself at all.  I just want to see his happy smile back and him feeling better.  He doesn't have anywhere to live permanently and either sleeps at a mates house or in his car.  We have had what I'd call a "normal" marriage for 21 years, four kids 5 years - 17years, with many ups and downs but nothing serious enough to break up over.  We are happiest when we are together - but at present I'm really worried as he is like looking at a stranger.  He has just started seeing his psychiatrist again which I'm hoping will help as he seems to trust him which is a good thing. He is the one that added this drug so Im hoping it helps him though I realise that it could take him a while to find the right one. Thanks for reading my saga.  Take care. Beth

It is the same as Thorazine, an old anti-psychotic. It is used for many other things including depression and bipolar - even long -term hiccups. Look for info on Thorazine and you'll get a better idea of what he is taking.
