Compro FDA Boxed Warning

Please note that it is important not to accept anyone's attempt to downplay this warning.  The FDA does not lightly issue a "boxed warning", the highest level caution given by that organization.  Read this carefully so you can decide for yourself if the the benefits of taking this drug or allowing it to be given to your child are worth these risks. 

Studies have shown that older adults with dementia (a brain disorder that affects the ability to remember, think clearly, communicate, and perform daily activities and that may cause changes in mood and personality) who take antipsychotics (medications for mental illness) such as (Compro) prochlorperazine have an increased chance of death during treatment.
 
Prochlorperazine is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of behavior problems in older adults with dementia. Talk to the doctor who prescribed this medication if you, a family member, or someone you care for has dementia and is taking (Compro) prochlorperazine.
