Is Compazine ever useful for pain relief?
No, Compazine (prochlorperazine) is not a narcotic. It is an anti-psychotic medication in a group of drugs called phenothiazines. It works by changing the actions of chemicals in your brain.
Prochlorperazine is used to treat psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. It has been known to be useful in treating pain due to migraines, and also for treating moderate to severe pain. It is also used to treat anxiety and to control severe nausea and vomiting.
Prochlorperazine is also used to treat hiccups (this is an off label use).
