Other Comments

Intramuscular thiethylperazine should be administered deeply into a large muscle mass while the patient is lying down. The patient should remain at rest for at least 1 hour after the injection. Thiethylperazine causes drowsiness and may impair the patient's ability to perform hazardous tasks requiring mental alertness or physical coordination.
