A is the answer and winners are Eze Hyginus and Uche.
Chlorpromazine is an aliphatic phenothiazine that is associated with
pronounced sedative and moderate antimuscarinic effects (such as urinary
retention and constipation) and extrapyramidal effects (such as tardive dys￾kinesia). Older patients may be more prone to develop these side-effects
because of prostatic hyperplasia (in males), erratic diet, reduced mobility and
parkinsonism, and other drugs that precipitate extrapyramidal effects. Older
patients are also more susceptible to hypotension.
