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."

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."

Phenergan (promethazine) for Nausea/Vomiting: "I have ulcerative colitis with nausea everyday. I take 1 10mg tablet in the morning and within an hour the nausea has disappeared. It's a miracle!"

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."
