The majority of the intraperitoneally administered trifluoperazine methiodide-C14 was excreted in feces by rats. No radioactivity was detected in the expired air of the animals. Blood level was generally low but detectable with a peak level at 1 hr; however the brain level was insignificant against the background at all times. Antimicrobial activities have been demonstrated. Metabolic studies indicated that the majority of this compound was excreted unchanged.
