If you took a single tablet by mistake then you might be alright. iIf you took a couple and didn't really need it then these are the known side effects you may experience.
Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome when using Prochlorperazine:
Blurred vision; chills; constipation; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; jitteriness; nasal congestion; sleeplessness.
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Prochlorperazine:
