I got prescribed promethazine 25mg tablets by my GP as I have been having trouble sleeping recently. As a person who has never taken prescription medicines, are there any really bad effects of this drug and, if so, how can I reduce the effects? I am 18 years old. Thank you.
This medicine is mainly used for nausea and vomiting. I take it 4 times a day and have for over 30 yrs. It can have a drowsy like affect if you are not used to it. You are so very young. I would rather you take something like this other than some sleeping pills that are highly addictive. The only side effect I have had with this drug is dry mouth and sleepiness. For someone who has not taken a lot of meds, this will help you sleep. Chewing gum and drinking plenty of fluids will help with the dry mouth. Best of luck to you, hon. ChelleKay
