CH Shashindran, ST Trivedi, C Adithan, V Sivaprakash, IS Gandhi
Premedication with thiabendazole was found to reduce the duration of tonic extensor phase of electroconvulsive seizures in psychiatric patients undergoing electroconvulsive therapy. However, it did not produce any change in the duration of tonic flexor and clonic phases.
