Phenergan (promethazine) for Sedation: I have no problem falling asleep, but wake in the night and sometimes cannot fall back to sleep. I take one half tablet 12.5 mg of Phenergen and even if my sleep is disturbed I fall back to sleep easily, and wake up refreshed.

For Sedation: I suffer from nightmares. At my doctor's suggestion I have been taking one Phenergan at night for many years. They calm my sleep and I have hardly any nightmares now. I tried sleeping pills first but they made me feel as if I was in living in cotton wool through the day. I also tried Nytol but they made me hyper and unable to sleep! If I forget to take a tablet I will have nightmares that night. Have not had any side effects at all. Tablets available over the counter at the chemist.

Phenergan (promethazine) for Opiate Adjunct: Was prescribed Phenergan with opioids after highly invasive complex oral surgery. Slept for a week & did not care if my mouth hurt. Best stuff ever.

For Nausea/Vomiting: Got this prescribed to me when I had a bug a few months back. Recently I have had recurring Clostridium Difficile (infection in the stomach) for a few months. I take Promethazine when I feel nauseated and it always works in about half an hour. It makes me extremely tired, but its worth it if it combats the nausea. That being said, it doesn't work for any stomach ailment other than nausea (pain, cramping, bloating). I love knowing it's around just in case I need it. (PS if you are really going to throw up, it will come out the other end after promethazine.)

For Nausea/Vomiting: I am pregnant and have severe nausea so my doc gave me these pills. They are amazing but they act like a sleeping pill. I went to bed at 5 pm and woke up at 7 am next morning. I like not feeling sick but I don't like sleeping so much when I take it.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I have had to take this to keep from being sick from vertigo caused by Multiple Sclerosis. It has worked very well if I catch it before it gets to the point of actually vomiting. A little dizzy means, "OMG! I HATE throwing up! Dive, dive, DIVE!" All while I throw myself at the bottle like I'm throwing myself on a live grenade to save my platoon. The ONLY reason it does not rate a ten is what I feel to be too long of a lag between ingestion, of a tablet, and the beginning of efficacy.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I only take promethazine when I'm severely nauseous to the point where I can't unclench my teeth. And let me tell you right now that this pill is magical. After half an hour the nausea is completely gone. But I've never gotten sleepy with it. I've actually had no side effects.

For Sedation: I found this little gem a few years ago. Whilst in my late forties I had a blocked nose I spent a fortune on remedies and although this sounds insignificant it became a constant annoyance as symptoms were so awful it caused nose bleeds, cold sores in my nose, sleepless nights etc. Eventually I went to the doctor who informed me it was a allergy. Beconase nasal spray and a antihistamine tablet. This I used daily as my allergy didn't subside with the changing seasons, it held it back on a good month although I never had a restful sleep. Then I found Phenergen and since I started taking it just before bedtime all of my symptoms have gone! The down side is I find it challenging to buy!

For : I see others call this their miracle and lifesaver and so do I. I have no idea what is wrong with me, but since an antibiotic reaction a few years ago I have become sensitized to a million things. I get what I call 'body storms,' with anxiety, gut issues, heat flutters, loss of temperature control, strange skin and internal sensations and hallucinations. For some reason phenergan seems to fix the lot! I don't think I'd still be here without it! I take 10mg if I feel the reaction mildly, and have occasionally gone as high as three 10mgs in one night. On one 10mg I sleep well but don't have any dopiness the next day. On 20mg I do feel a bit sleepy and my mood is down in the morning but it beats the body storms!

For Nausea/Vomiting: I love this medicine as it works amazingly! I take it for nausea and I never feel even the slightest bit like vomiting. The first 10 or so times that I took it I went straight to sleep for around 10 - 12 hours. Now when I take it I don't get sleepy at all.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I've been on promethazine for about 2 years and it is the only medicine I've ever taken that actually works for nausea. I also take tramadol which has a bad interaction with promethazine so I only take it at night as it also makes you sleepy which could be a bad thing if you needed to take one early, but 1 25mg tab shouldn't make you too drowsy.

Phenergan (promethazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I have used this medication many times for nausea. It always helps quickly and completely. The only reason it does not get a perfect score is that it knocks me out! I'll be groggy for the rest of the day even with only one dose.

For Nausea/Vomiting: I took a 10mg dose just once 2 days ago and it solved my nausea issues. I also slept for about 4hrs after I took it in the afternoon, and was really groggy. However, for the past two nights, I've suffered insomnia, and haven't been able to sleep at all.

For Nausea/Vomiting: Promethazine has worked wonders for me on many occasions when suffering from moderate to severe nausea. Due to the somewhat intense sedation at higher doses, I usually opt for Zofran (ondansetron) for mild nausea associated with the onset of a mild migraine. That being said, promethazine is the better option if you are already severely nauseous or vomiting. If taking it for the first time, be wary of doing anything that could be dangerous while being impaired, as it is notorious for being very sedating. Also, from personal experience, I learned that I cannot tolerate this medication IV. It was given to me as an opiate adjunct and caused me to become aggressive, disoriented, and extremely restless. Overall, I still recommend it.

For Vertigo: The pill version does nothing for vertigo. In my opinion, it appears to make me feel more unbalanced and dizzy than without. The syrup form does provide some help when it comes to treating vertigo. But, it its effects aren't long lasting either.The suppository form does provide some help towards helping treat vertigo. For severe cases of vertigo, phenergan alone is not the best solution for such. I would only recommend using it if your vertigo is not severe.

For Light Sedation: The phenergan shot works well at sedating me. The other forms that it comes in - such as pill, syrup, and suppository do not provide the same sedating effect for me.

For Nausea/Vomiting: Promethazine syrup is what I started out with. It used to real good for me to take away nausea whenever I would experience. After having used it for over 10 years, I feel like it isn't working as effectively as it used to be. I just found out that it has alcohol in it, and I know longer feel comfortable using it. I also own it in pill form (50mg). The pill is very strong and I find that it leaves me feeling lethargic, dizzy, and it creates stomach upset. I don't understand how a pill that's supposed to help you when your nauseous and sick can actually make you feel worse. The suppositories work the best for me. I don't have any side effects from it. And unlike a pill, I don't have to worry a out it possibly coming back up again.

For Motion Sickness: I own the tablets (50 mg), the syrup, and the suppositories. My longest experience has been with the syrup. I have been using the syrup for over 10 years for helping to control my motion sickness. Also, I have used it other times to help with stomach upset too. I started out taking 2 teaspoonfuls of the syrup and that worked great worked great for controlling my motion sickness. However, the longer I continued to take it, the higher of a dosage I found myself having to take for it to work for me. My doctor ended up increasing my dosage. I was prescribed the biggest bottle of this stuff that you can get. I saw alcohol listed as an ingredient. I didn't feel right using it anymore. I was prescribed the pill and suppositories to use instead.

Phenergan (promethazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: I'm going through chemo (Taxol and Carboplatin) for ovarian cancer and Phenergan is great. I sometimes also take Zofran with it because they affect two totally different receptors causing the nausea and both together usually stops the ever present nausea.
