Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “Complications from a first colo-rectal surgery had me in the OR two additional times within a three week span. Very painful. Doc had me on Meprozine for pain and Valium for colon spasms. Meprozine was very good at pain relief--kept me feeling drunk and out-of-it. Side effects were extreme drowsiness, and blurred vision. ”
Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “After removal of 2 infected teeth, dentist prescribed meprozine which worked very well. I have problems with many pain meds and have allergic reaction to codeine. I also have problems keeping medicine down and this med did not upset my stomach at all. What a great relief to find this medicine.”
Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and I am in at least 6 or 7 level pain most of the time without meds. A lot of pain meds make me nauseated or leave me woozy. For some reason Meprozine doesn't make me feel light headed at all and the phenergan in it keeps me from being nauseated. I was able to go to college and graduate with honors because I actually felt like doing something!”
Mepergan Fortis (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I used this medicine everyday for sixteen yrs. It didn't really help that much with pain but it took me out of reality so I didn't care if I was in pain. Not an addicting feeling, so when I stopped it cold turkey when I moved to a different state I didn't feel sick for not having it.”
Mepergan Fortis (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I found this medicine very useful for pain. I had my ankle operated on and they prescribed this to me. I have to agree with most of the reviews. I felt little to no pain but I slept all the time and now when my ankle becomes painful I will take a pill and I have to lay down. My mouth stayed dry the whole time, I couldn't get enough liquids in me.”
Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “Prescribed for pain relief of kidney stone(s). Found meprozine to be very effective in reducing pain. For me it also had very soothing psychological effect; that everything was going to be alright. Just what I needed in the said situation. Doctor recently said they don't make it as much anymore, not sure why.”
Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I recently had a plate and screws put in my wrist due to a fall. After the surgery they sent me home with this medicine. The only concern I have is I dont know if the medicine relieved my pain because all I could do is SLEEP. It made me so groggy. Even after I woke up I was still not all there feeling very light headed with NO ENERGY AT ALL”
Mepergan Fortis (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I tolerated this drug very well after dental surgery and regret that it is no longer available. The combination of Demerol and promethazine created a medicine that tended to be more effective for pain than Demerol tablets. I had no unpleasant side effects. Easy to use, difficult to get.”
Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I used this after breast surgery and it worked well. I also did not wake up groggy afterwards like some medications do”
Mepergan Fortis (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “It was great for a migraine and I took it after I got home from ER”
Meprozine (meperidine / promethazine) for Pain: “I was having real bad back pains one day, and I noticed my mom had a bottle of this perscribed to her. So I went and had one and it took my pain away. ”
For Pain: “Went via ambulance to E.R. for kidney stone pain, was given phenergan for pain and result: allergic to drug caused mild heart attack and I was 43 yrs old then. I am 56 yrs old now, no heart problems.”
