Spanish term or phrase: clorhidrato de ciproheptadina
This is from a doctor's CV. I've got as far as clorhidrato = hypochloride/hypochlorite and ciproheptadina = cyproheptadine, if I'm right, but can't find them together, so assume I'm wrong!!
Help please!!
This is for treatment of Cushing's disease and Nelson's syndrome.
