I can't take benzos for a whole host of reasons so I am wondering if an antihistamine might be a short term solution for my insomnia. In the past I have used phenergan for motionsickness with no contraindications, would it be inappropriate to take a mild dose until I can see a doctor?
Basically I'm going crazy not being able to sleep and the country I'm in only prescribes benzos for sleep disorders. .
Phenergan has many uses, some of which you have mentioned. It can be used as an antihistamine or for motion sickness, nausea or for sleep. I would say that if you have a prescription for it and your medications and any medical conditions you have, haven't changed since it was prescribed then it would be ok to use it for sleep. Although you might want to check with your doctor or pharmacy first. I take Phenergan for nausea, but when I have trouble sleeping I take Benadryl.
i always had a problem with not sleeping until doc put me on one lorazapam now I get sleepy and fall into to sleep
