Triclofos sodium (Triclos) and chloral hydrate, when administered equimolar liquid doses of 0.15 ml/lb and 0.10 ml/lb, respectively, as premedications for electroencephalography, were equally effective in inducing sleep in pediatric patients. Minor side effects occurred with equal frequency, but triclofos was more acceptable than chloral hydrate in regard to taste.
