A previously described dansylation method of quantitation was applied to determine the circulating levels of chlorpromazine metabolites in humans. Localization of the metabolites within the erythrocytes suggests that the whole hemolyzed blood be used for analyses. An optimum procedure of assay was developed which makes it possible, for the first time, to determine 11 metabolites in blood simultaneously. Blood level data from hospitalized chronic schizophrenic patients receiving variable doses of chlorpromazine are included.
