This was prescribed for me with another medication for pain after my knee surgery. I can't remember ever taking this but I am going to undergo another surgery and trying to figure out if I should discard this prescription
Is Compazine prescribed for pain?

I know I'm a little late, but... compazine is used for nausea and vomiting, which many people experience after surgery under general anastasia. Some pain meds can also cause nausea and vomiting, so the compazine could help with that, as well.
Hello, Compazine is a medication thats given for nausea and vomiting. It was used for years and is an older medicine. Its newer counterparts are zofran and regulan. However, compassion has been out for a long time its not a pain med. It was used a lot for people with flying nausea in an airplane and it has very little side effects compared to the 2 newer medicines zofran and regulan. You need to clarify with your doctor why you are getting this medicine for pain. It sounds like you are going to need a real pain medicine but thats not it.
Compazine,is not an antipsychotic its nausea medication and has a lot of uses,but I have never heard it prescribed for pain,its still in use I just filled mine today for NAUSEA and have been on it for five years
No, Compazine is an anti-psychotic and has been discontinued.
