Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: Read the side effects carefully. I had a severe distonic reaction and had to spend the day in the emergency room after just 1 pill. I have been advised by my doctor to never even take anything in this family of medicines.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: Been taking for years for nausea from Irritable Bowel Syndrome etc. Works great and quickly! Get restless legs next day but that ends quickly. Heard that if taking it regularly long term you should have liver and kidneys monitored as it can do damage to them!

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Anxiety: This medication gave me the worst experience of my life. It made me sleepy, yes. But at the same time, It sped up my mental discomfort, and it made my muscles jump. Similar to restless leg syndrome, but throughout my entire body. It was so bad they had to reverse it with Benadryl to alleviate the symptoms, And finally they gave me a mixture of Valium and Demerol to put me in a twilight state until it passed. If you have ANY medication allergies, even mild. I would strongly advise against this medication.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I have been dealing with chronic nausea/vomiting for almost a year. I have had every test in the book and they all come back negative. I've tried medications for irritable bowel syndrome and I've tried Phenegran and Zofran. None of which worked. I also used the transdermal Scoplamine patch, which helped a little. Finally, my doctor prescribed Compazine suppository and I have had great relief of my nausea/vomiting. I hope to be able to stay on this for a long time. It is a wonder medicine.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I suffer from occasional vomiting from acid indigestion brought on by major anxiety. I take Protonix daily for indigestion & also Buspar for anxiety which has helped drastically. However sometimes the anxiety is so extreme I will still get nausea & vomiting. That's when I go to my trusted friend Compazine. It lasts well past 8 hours & gives me time to relax & calm my anxiety (which is near to impossible to do while you are throwing up stomach acid every few minutes%u2026). I have also been prescribed Zofran which also works very well, but is a lot more expensive. I have not experienced any side effects with either medicine. Compazine has saved me more than a few times when I have an appointment I can't afford to miss & that I am anxious over.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Anxiety: I was first given Compazine in the hospital for severe nausea associated with a migraine. I suffer from migraines, generalize anxiety, and panic attacks but I was admitted to the hospital due to the worst panic attack I've ever had. They were giving me Valium, but cautiously. When the nurse gave me Compazine for the first time, my nausea and anxiety left at the same time, and quickly too. I was able to finally rest/sleep comfortably. Even though it is prescribed for nausea, I would recommend asking your Doctor about Compazine for anxiety. It will make you sleepy, but like I said, the feeling of be comfortable in my own skin for a change is worth it.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: Compazine is chemically similar to Thorazine...both of which can cause extreme and sometimes dangerous reactions the in people who have risk of serotonin syndrome or sensitivities. I personally experienced rage reactions to Compazine when it was used to treat nausea from migraines.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I have been on Compazine for over 2 years and it has been an absolute overall relief of nausea, anxiety and nerves/nervous tension. Finding a doctor who will prescribe it without a struggle and or reservation is a whole other issue. I've been told it carries too many side effects and isn't considered safe or for long term. I've been told to switch to Zofran. The upside is Zofran seems to have a fairly good rating. I never suffered side effects from the Compazine.

For Nausea/Vomiting: Low side effect profile! However, it's a weaker anti-emetic, so I often have to rely on stronger medications instead.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I have been suffering with gastroparesis for years, and at one point ended up in the emergency room because I was so intensely nauseated and dehydrated. Was given Compazine in IV solution, which worked wonderfully to stop the nausea. The doctor sent me home with Compazine pills, and they weren't as effective.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I am currently using Compazine to combat nausea resulting from chemotherapy. It seems to work better for me than Zofran did. It does cause fatigue but that is a small price to pay for not vomiting.

Review by Anonymous:

For Nausea/Vomiting: I have BPPV and have tried many different tablets, none of which had any effect until I tried these, which I have been taking as a preventative measure for around six months. They are great for preventing nausea (not so good at stopping nausea if it has already started - especially if you are unable to keep them down long enough!). The downside is that they do give me absolutely blinding headaches (taking lots of co-codamol helps!) which can last for a few days. Due to this, and the long term effects they can have, I try to limit the amount I take and am finding that one tablet every three days is generally doing the trick. Due to the length of time the headaches last and the length of time between taking tablets, this suggests to me that they stay in your system for a few days. As I have been an insomniac for a few years now, I cannot comment on the drowsiness. In summary, they are not perfect but are an acceptable alternative to spending my day in work vomiting and staggering round like a drunk, which happened more than once before I started taking these tablets.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I experienced the "restlesss, anxious" side effects from this medication and it's been almost 24 hours and I am still feeling it in my legs. My headache is gone which is great, but my legs can't stop moving.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I used it for sometime and it caused me temporary muscular spasms in my face. I prefer Zofran.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: This medication does help out a lot when you have nausea. I have taken a lot of different medications before and this is the first one in seven years that has actually worked for me. The only side effect that I get from it is being tired after taking it but it is so much better then being sick to my stomach.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I was always tired and lethargic. I thought it was from the chemo I was taking but when I switched to Anzemet, I realized it was the Compazine that made me tired.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I was injected (IV) during shoulder(rotator)surgery. I was expecting to deal with nausea as in a past procedure. Absolutely no problems, this one is a keeper!

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I am an older adult in good health. I originally had dizziness (possibly from a virus or sinus bug) which caused nausea. This medication took away both symptoms within 1-2 hours and I was able to carry on with my normal activities.

Compazine (prochlorperazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: This medicine is absolutely wonderful. I had a stomach virus, took this medicine and did not vomit or feel nauseated again. I would recommend this to anyone suffering a stomach virus.

For Nausea/Vomiting: This stuff works really well. I never imagined that there was a pill that could make you stop vomiting. When I was very sick yesterday and could non stop throwing up, I took this and it stopped completely. Two thumbs up.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I had extreme nausea from an assumed stomach virus, and while I still had some nausea, I felt better and it took away the feeling of having to vomit. So minus some diarrhea associated with that stomach bug, I didn't have any vomiting and my nausea eased up.
