Research Facts
Largactil is used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses, a typical antipsychotic. It is also used to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting, for relief of restlessness and anxiety before surgery, and to manage symptoms of mania in bipolar disorder. It is used to treat adults and children. In children it is most commonly used for nausea and vomiting, to calm them before surgery and in some cases for behavioral issues.
Poulenc Limited became Rhone-Poulenc after 1990, thus the cards cannot be any older.

Research Facts
Information provided by manufacturer: "This device is simply inserted under the skin and is designed to diagnose syncope without using electrical leads. The monitor features a continuous looping memory that can record up to 42 minutes of the heart's electrical activity before and following a fainting episode. This information helps physicians determine the cause of the syncope. The Reveal was developed in Canada by Dr. George Klein at the London Health Sciences Centre and our engineers at Medtronics of Canada, and is now exported around the world."
