Reviews for Promethazine

Sort by:

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I have never heard of this medication being used for anything but nausea and vomiting but it helps me I have GERD, acid re-flux all the time and some foods make me sick to my stomach if it gets too bad I will take half a 25 mg tablet if that does not work I take the other half it states on script not to take more than one every 8 hours so taking two at one time would literally be overdosing my medication and not using it as prescribed I do not recommend doing that with this medication it knocks me out with just one half of a dose anything over what is prescribed is abusing the prescription. As far as knocking me out I actually want to sleep when I am nauseated so I am glad it knocks me out so I do not get sick to my stomach any more"

For Sedation: "I've always suffered with bad sleeping patterns and anxiety around stressful times such as exams or when I have a lot of deadlines, taking two of these (25mg each) knocks me out and means I don't have the bad anxiety dreams (that used to stop me from thinking straight) and now I get everything sorted the next day."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I was prescribed this medicine about a year and a half ago to get over a stomach bug. Then, when I got Clostridium Difficile a year ago, I asked for this medicine again. I have an undetermined stomach condition that I've had since I can remember. It makes me feel nauseous often. My doctor gave me a refillable prescription of Promethazine. Every single time I take promethazine, my nausea is gone in 40 minutes or less! It has been wonderful for me. It does make me sleepy, but its worth it for me if it stops the nausea. I take 1/2 of a 25mg tablet if I'm feeling only somewhat bad, 1 tablet if I'm feeling bad, and rarely two tablets if I feel extremely bad. It is the only thing I've tried that always works completely without fail. I love it!"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I was nauseous and in pain for 3 months straight couldn't hold anything down at all. Dr could not figure out what was wrong, I lost 70lbs in that three months from not eating anything but applesauce and water. Two years ago I was diagnosed with GERD acid reflux and a hiatus hernia, still with the meds they put me on I was unable to hold food down maybe toast rice water etc. Finally my Dr introduced me to promethazine, it has been my best friend I take it probably 3 to 4 times a week and everytime within 30~40min it works fabulous. I would recommend it to anyone who has nauseous/vomiting issues."

For Sedation: "I take phernergan to help me sleep when I am run down or am needing that extra bit of sleep. It always knocks me out within an hour and I sleep like a baby! I struggle to wake up if I take a higher dosage but I wake up feeling refreshed and like I have slept for years! I recommend it to everyone who has trouble sleeping! I have also used it for hay fever but never really saw any remarkable changed in my allergy."

Phenergan (promethazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I tried this medicine a day after I vomited three times and had that nausea feeling and that next day I vomited once in the morning but when I went to the medical centre they gave me the prescription for phenergan. I fell asleep instantly for two hours and a half and woke up refreshed and my stomach did not hurt for the rest of the day and I didn't vomit ever since. It's the best medicine for nausea and vomiting."

Phenergan (promethazine) for Allergic Rhinitis: "It worked to help me sleep every time I tried except once. Also is great if you are sick to your stomach. I have never used it for allergies, but I want to. Try it if your Doctor lets you."

Phenergan (promethazine) for Sedation: "I was prescribed this for my 6 yr old daughter to help her sleep. I've only been using it a couple of nights but it doesn't seem to be working. I am giving her the 3x5ml dose and giving her it at 6pm and up to now she is still not going to sleep before 11pm. Am I not giving her enough or not giving it enough time to work? Advice greatly appreciated! Thanks"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I take this now and I'm pregnant. It's the only medication that has completely helped my nausea. The only bad thing is it makes me extremely tired and that's not good because I'm a stay at home mother of a very energized 3 year old."

For Nausea/Vomiting: "Promethazine is a god send to me. I'm on many other medications, which get me sick every morning, feeling nauea/vomiting, dizziness, etc. Promethazine takes all that away from me, and I love it! I really recommend this drug for people who get morning sickness, or are RX'd a strong narcotic (Oxycodone, Morphine, Methadone, etc.), it helps and takes away the bad side effects of the narcotic. It's RX'd as a opiate adjunct. Works wonders."

Phenergan (promethazine) for Allergic Reactions: "I got given it at first by emergency department when a rash was breaking out over my face. It works. But I also have anxiety and have found it to be way better than Valium etc. I feel relaxed and too not sleep I'll just take half a tablet but at night the 25 mg tablet helps my allergies and is a god send to relax the mind. I love it. I've noticed some people take it for nausea. I have always used stemitel and that works almost instantly. And I have no adverse reactions to either. I don't know why they don't use this for anxiety and such"

For Nausea/Vomiting: "I just got put on Promethazine for nausea and vomiting. I started out liking it a lot, but now not so much as I thought I was feeling better seems I've gotten worse. Was only having normal side effects, now starting to have more severe side effects. Gave a 5 because I did like it and was helpful."

For Sedation: "I started taking phenergen to assist with ongoing bad allergies (to dust mite and pollen) and found it very effective for this as well as guaranteeing me a good night sleep. I only take a 10mg dose about 1 hour before bed and no later than 8pm if I want to wake early for exercise before work. I find if I take it any later I am lethargic at 0530 and take a bit to get going. I have also used the syrup for my young boys as a rare sleep aid. Both my husband (who was prescribed it when he had an allergic reaction to penicillin) and eldest 5 yo are affected by this antihistamine/sleep aid. It makes them groggy and crabby the next day. My youngest (3yo) and I have only positive effects from it."
