side effects of promethazine hydrochloride pills?
my insomnia has worsened lately so my doctor gave me some promethazine hydrochloride 25mg pills. I'm 14 years old and I just wanted to ask whether anyone of you had taken these pills before and whether you can tell me some of its side effects.
  I find some information about Promethazine at
There is description of side effects, dosage, using of this medicine. Hope it will be useful.
promethazine hydrochloride what is it used for?
  It's brand name is Phenergan. Phenergan is an antihistamine that relieves nasal stuffiness and inflammation and red, inflamed eyes caused by hay fever and other allergies. It is also used to treat itching, swelling, and redness from hives and other rashes; allergic reactions to blood transfusions; and, with other medications, anaphylactic shock (severe allergic reaction).Phenergan is also used as a sedative and sleep aid for both children and adults, and is prescribed to prevent and control nausea and vomiting before and after surgery and to prevent and treat motion sickness. It is also used, with other medications, for pain after surgery.
Have you ever heard of someone abusing the drug Promethazine? I was wondering if it has side effects, as I think someone might have jacked my prescription. I got it for a surgery to help with nausea, and I was wondering why anybody would have a reason for stealing PROMETHAZINE?
  One reason would be for the anti nausea it gives so if you were hungover. Promethazine is sometimes used as a recreational drug in conjunction with codeine in prescription cough syrup. The syrup by itself contains 7% alcohol. The mixture of Sprite and cough syrup with codeine, which is known as "purple drank" or "Sizzurp", is popularized in the rap world, especially in the Houston area.
What is the difference between promethazine with codein and promethazine with dextromorphan?
Will it kill me? We have the promethazine with dextromorphan will this still work for purple lean?
Bob B
  Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that is found in many over-the-counter cough medicines. Codine is a narcotic that is used as cough suppressant, pain reliever, and a hypnotic.

Promethazine is used mostly to prevent nausea. It is also used as part of preoperative sedation to prevent nausea from the other types of sedation used.

If you have both, I don't recommend using them BOTH at the same time. You may overdose.
What is the difference between Promethazine VC w/ Codeine and Promethazine w/ Codeine?
I get pneumonia frequently and they usually give me Promethazine w/ Codeine 10-6.25 for my cough. This time they prescribed Promethazine VC w/ Codeine 10-5-6.25 instead. What is the difference and what does the "VC" mean?
Fireman 1
  VC stands for the addition of a decongestant- so you have promethazine which is an antihistamine and codeine an opiod all in one. Sounds like it may work for you. Be careful with driving until you get used to their effect. It may also affect your sleep patterns.
I hurt my hand and I was wondering if it would still be safe to take a 2 year outdated meprozine?
we have an old bottle laying around it has promethazine and hydrochloride in it
keep it movin
  O_O if you wanna die sure!
Teehee! ♥
Promethazine & Solodyn (Stomach Ache)?
My stomach has been hurting for the past hour or so feeling as if I may be vomit at some point later. I'm 16 and I take a pill of Solodyn and Claritin every night for Acne and Allergies. (Solodyn is prescribed) I had also taken a Loperamide Hydrochloride for constipation and diarrhea symptoms at about 12:30am EST (The other 2 pills at about 10pm EST. If I use a Promethazine (prescribed for stomach aches after my nasal septum surgery) suppository for this stomach ache now will it affect me negatively with having taken the other meds?
Any questions ill edit the post and answer my best. Thanks for any help in advance.
Steve G

Only use the promethazine if you are nauseated or vomiting. It won't do a thing for a stomachache.
John M
The Pharmacist suggested if I did not feel comfy with his theory. Just thought I would ask others!
Do they make on for vaganial insert. Just want to know before I talk to my DR again.
hippo 1
  you didn't say for what purpose. As an antiallergic, as a sedative...If they are suppositories, they are meant for rectal use. On the other way i know that promethazine can be used as un spermicide. And it's a problem, suppositories may not release the active drug at the vaginal level because they are formulated for the rectal mucosa.
will Promethazine hydrochloride get u high?
my friend found some in his brothers room an he is trying to find out if it will get him "high"
its 25 mg
  It's an anti-allergy medication. Ask yourself if taking benadryl or claritin gets you high, and you'll have your answer.
Dr. House
What can I tell my doctor to get Promethazine prescription?
I get it illegally but I'm getting too nervous about it, just help a brother out. I'm thinking that if I tell him that I get motion sickness when driving and that someone reccomended Promethazine it should work.
  You can get it over the counter in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and many other countries (brand names Phenergan, Promethegan, Romergan, Fargan, Farganesse, Prothiazine, Avomine, Atosil, RhinathioL) So I would try to order it from one of the companies over there in bulk.

It's also used as an antihistamine (like Bennedryl). It blocks the effects of histamine in your body.

Promethazine treats allergy symptoms such as itching, runny nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, hives, and itchy skin rashes. It also prevents motion sickness, and treats nausea and vomiting or pain after surgery and is used as a sedative or sleep aid. (Taken off the pamphlet that comes with a prescription)

So I would go with really bad allergies that keep you awake all night.

PS they wont give you a prescription if you have high blood pressure.

purple drank <3 haha
Whats the difference between Promethazine w/codeine and Promethazine DM? What does DM mean?
  One has codeine and the other has dextromethrophen in it. They are both cough suppressents.
Roberta P
Does Promethazine or Codeine have any traces of cocaine in it?
Some dumbass white dude at my skool keeps trying to say Purple Drank/Purple Lean has cocaine in it. I'm tellin him that all Purple Drank is Sprite, and Promethazine/Codeine Cough Syrup. So basically the question is: does Promethazine or Codeine have any cocaine? I know Codeine is a narcotic, made from opium, so I dont think it has any cocaine in it.
  No. Cocaine is stimulant, and a completely different compound extracted from coca leaves. Codeine is an opiate, synthesized from morphine which in turn is synthesized from opium. Cocaine would definitely not be in a codeine mixture.
Help sleeping tablets?
I used to take Zopiclone 7.5mg sleeping tablets.

I've recently been change to Promethazine Hydrochloride 25mg.

Has anyone else been on this as, i don't feel it helps at all.

The doctor said it was a sleeping tablet but is it? help please

  Hi Doctors seem to be trying not to give out full on sleeping tablets these days so are giving people antihistamines instead. They are not as strong as sleeping tablets and I would think you need to be telling your doctor that they are not working.

Promethazine is derived from a group of medicines called phenothiazines, however, it is also part of the family of sedating antihistamines. Histamine is a chemical in the body that causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction. These can include inflammation of the skin, airways or tissues, rashes, itching of the skin, eyes or nose, nasal congestion and narrowing of the airways. Promethazine blocks the binding of histamine to receptors in many areas of the body and thereby prevents the actions of histamine. This helps prevent and relieve the typical symptoms of an allergic reaction. Histamine may be released from and act in a small (localised) area of the body e.g the nose. Alternatively, histamine can result in a serious or complete body reaction e.g. anaphylactic reaction. Promethazine is useful for the prevention or relief of localised or less serious allergies such as hay fever or itchy rash in addition to serious allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis. Promethazine blocks histamine receptors in an area of the brain called the vomiting centre. It also acts to block other receptors in the vomiting centre (serotonin receptors). Therefore promethazine prevents the vomiting centre from sending the nerve messages to the stomach that would normally result in vomiting. Promethazine also acts on receptors in the gut (muscarinic receptors) to decrease the amount of fluid secreted from the lining of the gut and decrease the actions of the gut muscles. This further aids the treatment or prevention of nausea and vomiting. Promethazine is known as a sedating antihistamine as it enters the brain in significant quantities and causes drowsiness. As a result it is commonly used for the short-term treatment of sleep disturbances and to provide sedation prior to minor procedures or surgery.

What is it used for?
Allergic conditions such as hay fever and itchy rash
Difficulty in sleeping
Life threatening allergic reaction (anaphylactic reaction)
Nausea and vomiting
Sedation prior to surgery (preoperative sedation)
Does all promethazine have codine in it my bottle just says promethazine dm?
I have a bottle of promethazine dm but it doesent say if it contains codine or not
if not than what can i do to it to get high?
  No narcotics.

Be realistic. No medical professional is going to help you do something dumb like abuse Rx drugs.
I was about to take come promethazine but it says it expired about 5 1/2 months ago.....So my question is is it safe to take it even though it expired?

Wouldnt it just make potency less?
Dj R
  Don't take medicine past the expiration.

In some cases old meds become less potent but some can become more potent - which can easily lead to an overdose.
Is it okay to mix Promethazine and Profen II DM?
I take Promethazine for stomach aches and i have been having tough issues with my coughing, so is it okay to mix the two? also Ive heard a lot about cough medicine abuse, are the two going to mess me up?

I took adderall xr 30mg this morning but im sure it wont affect the medicine, will it?
Zach F
  if i dont see u on here anymore,my guess would be that it was a BAD choice
Question for someone whos been prescribed promethazine with codeine syrp recently?
I was always curious about promethazine with codeine syrup and i wanted to know what dosage it says on the bottle... Does it just say how to take it or the name, or does it show dosage wise! Just wonderin, thanks!
  the dosage is usually determined by a doc, & depending on his/her directions, it will say how to take it. It really works to get rid of a bad/resistant cough & a good night's sleep.
Is it safe to use promethazine with an epipen?
I had my wisdom teeth removed on Friday and was prescribed promethazine for nausea. Today, after taking that, my dust allergy acted up and I took benadryl along with my epipen. Is this safe? I didn't see any warnings on either medication. Thanks for any help.
nyx コト
  It should be fine.

Why did you use the epipen? That's for life threatening allergic reactions. I've never seen a dust allergy that was life threatening.
with a really bad cough is there somewhere i can get promethazine with codeine w/o prescription?
where can i find promethazine w codeine plz help me out
  not without a prescription
What would the combination of Promethazine and Ambien do, if taken in fairly large amounds and same time?
I'm just curious what would ambien and promethazine do if taken at the same time?
Curious Cutie
  That sounds like a poor man's "Purple Drank". Using a sleeping pill instead of codeine in the drug you're trying to emulate will drastically increase the risk of respiratory failure. The original is dangerous enough. What you just mentioned is even worse. If you go too far over the recommended medicinal dose you run a very high risk of passing out and your lungs shutting down.

The increased risk comes from the fact that both Promethazine and Ambien can stop your breathing at high doses. You'd be taking two drugs that, individually, could kill at a high dose.

All these drugs show up on a standard toxicology screen.
Lean, Promethazine, Codeine, Sizzurp... Heeelp?
What are the effects of Promethazine/codeine? Is there any bad side effects or any bad reactions you can get from it? I've had a bad past with weed, & have major panick attacks that last a while whenever i do smoke. So i completely quit. Alcohol doesnt have any bad effects on me. But i wanna try leaning, Anybody have any bad experiences ? Do you think i'll panic from it ?
Would taking Paxil, Morphine, and promethazine with codeine all at the same time kill?
I need to know right away, if there deadly or not. I just took all three together:
120mg of Morphine
About 5 Table Spoons of Promethazine w/Codeine
& 40mg of Paxil
Possible overdose on Promethazine and Codeine cough syrup?
I got confused and took 2 Tablespoons of Promethazine with Codeine cough syrup instead of 2 teaspoons do i need to call poison control or will i be okay?
  You'll be fine. You might feel a little high though. Just lay down, drink lots of water.

can you take Meloxicam with Promethazine w/ Codeine?
i was at the doctors Wednesday with just a sore throat. nothing major. so i got prescribed Meloxicam to reduce the swelling. The day after worse symptoms started kicking in. Just went back to the doctors today and he prescribed me the Z-pack and Promethazine w/ Codeine. I forgot to ask if i could take the Meloxicam with that, so can i?

How many promethazine should I take with one oxycodone?
I just got my wisdom teeth pulled out and my docter perscribed me oxycodone to relieve the pain and promethazine to relieve any sickness I would feel from the pain reliver. I am scared to take the the oxycodone cause im scared of being nauses!
Caleb Mcneal
  Oxycodone for a pulled wisdom tooth? I hope you don't get addicted to it. If a doctor prescribed the medicines for you, then the prescribed directions for both drugs should be listed on the bottles.
Could this drug I'm taking be causing my depression?
I've got depression. I haven't been diagnosed, nor do I want to tell my mum about it. It's all come out of what's happened since my start at school through to grade 11, and I'm a male, 15 years old. But I think this drug that I'm taking might be worsening it.

It's not anything big. It's just a simple antihistamine. It's called Phenergan, and the tablets are 10mg each. It's "scientific name", I guess, is Promethazine Hydrochloride. It says that the only side effect is drowsiness, which has affected me, and it supposedly contains lactose, which I'm not intolerant to.

Is this Phenergan actually making my depression worse or is the depression just all from my life experiences?
Nineteen-Twenty by Ten-Eighty Pixels :)
  Why are you taking so much Phenergan? It is typically used as an antiemetic (reducing nausea) and has been almost completely replaced as a drug to treat allergies. Although sometimes it is used for an acute allergy. No matter what I highly recommend you look into another medication.

Can it be making you worse? Yes. Is it actually making you worse? It is almost impossible to say. It may also be a combination of factors.

Phenergan is also, as the other person said, a bit more complex. Actually many of the best antiemetics are better known as antipsychotics like haloperidol. Antipsychotics are also antihistamines, actually the first antipsychotic was developed to treat allergies and it was tested on psychiatric patients and many got better. Phenergan falls within this group of drugs that are antihistamines but have many other actions that control psychosis. Phenergan is not used to treat psychosis because it is very weak and not very effective but it still retains those antiemetic properties.

My point is that despite the fact Phenergan is weak and you are on a tiny dose it still does impact some of those neurotransmitters in your brain like dopamine.

See your doctor, try a new medication and see what happens. If you feel better then it was the Phenergan. Also no drug on Earth has one side effect, although drowsiness is most common it has other side effects.

Lastly I don't know exactly why you have not told your mum about your depression but you should. Depression is not weakness or failure, and if it has gone beyond the mild depression everyone has from time to time then you need to get help.
Tramadol, Flexeril and Promethazine the risk of seizure can I take?
I've taken 3 tramadol earlier today last one around 6pm. It made my stomach hurt so I took a promethazine around 10pm. Now, the pain is back and I want to sleep is it safe to take my flexeril? I don't have a history of seizures but when I check the interaction it says theres a risk for seizures. My pharmacist says that's only if you've had history of seizures who do I believe?
Count Drakul
  i take Tramadol daily and I have taken Promethazine with it. It may increase the effects of tramadol and the drug interactions site does say it may cause seizures but i think that is very rare. You usually have to have a history of seizures for this to happen usually. It is also associated with large doses of Tramadol, 300mg and up. The Flexeril should be fine too. 9 times out of 10 the pharmacy wont tell you to do anything dangerous but sometimes the drug interaction checker will scare you. It's always good to be cautious though, you don't want to be another Heath Ledger.

what is the difference between promethazine vc syrup and promethazine dm syrup?
Maria P
  promethazine vc does NOT contain codeine unless its says promethazine vc with codeine.

prom-vc is an antihistamine and decongestant

prom-dm is is an antihistamine and cough suppressant
How much Promethazine is "safe" to take if you weigh 110 pounds?
I weigh 110 pounds and need to take Promethazine because of allergies. How much is safe and how much does it take to overdose?
  To be perfectly blunt, it's however much your doctor prescribes to you. Any prescription will be given based on your need which can involve factors more than just weight, age, and gender and some drugs require blood work to find the appropriate dosage. Online, we would have no access to the basic information that would be required to say what dosage you would need... but moreso, only your doctor can prescribe your needed dose so whatever dose anyone here might say is moot if your doctor won't prescribe that dose for you. points out that it's simply an antihistamine (which also can help with motion sickness)... it's not really a drug you can abuse so the highest "safe" dose would also be a moot point. The answer would be to ask your doctor how much you should be taking. Good luck and I hope I helped!
Where in the world can you buy Promethazine w/ Codeine Syrup without a prescription?
Where in the world can you buy Promethazine w/ Codeine Syrup without a prescription? I thought that you could in Canada but I'm not sure now, any ideas? Thanks.
  I believe you can buy it in the U.S. without a prescription if you can find a pharmacy which sell eligible C-Vs over the counter. Most pharmacies do not participate.
Cetirizine hydrochloride (zyrtec) from online pharmacy?
hi...i used an online pharmacy to buy 180 10 mg cetirizine hydrochloride pills (generic zyrtec...for allergies)...normally they are oval but the ones that came in the mail are round and unmarked. they came packaged in little boxes labeled cetirizine hydrochloride and it has all the info on the boxes and also the bubble packs but ive never seen them round and unmarked before. i just want to make sure that i didnt get ripped off and that they are in fact 10 mg of cetirizine hydrochloride. any help is appreciated. thanks!
  generics never look like the brand name pills.

if you are concerned, call or email the pharmacy and double check that you got the right med, but if the package has good labeling then you should be ok

how do i get a prescription for promethazine with codeine cough syrup?
i want to know what EXACTLY to say to my doctor to get promethazine with codeine cough syrup..and u think she could tell if i need it wen she looks at my throat?? well just tell me EXACTLY wat i need to say to get the prescription. thanks
  Why do you want this? Is it because you have a terrible cough or because you want the codein? Tell him/her the problem and the doctor will decide what you need. I'm guessing the doctor will NOT give you promethazine because that is for NAUSEA.

Promethazine can it be used to treat nerves or mental problems? What is is normally prescribed for?
  Promethazine is an antihistamine medication. It's used to treat allergies, or rarely as a short term sleep aid. It has no use at all for any sort of mental illness or anxiety.

I got my wisdom teeth removed yesterday, and i feel nauseous. why?
I'm taking 4 different kinds of meds, penicillin vk, diflunisal, oxycodone, and promethazine. the promethazine is supposed to counteract the nauseousness with the oxycodone (percoset), but everytime i stand up, i feel really hot and nauseous, even though its 68 degrees in my house. is this normal, and do you have any advice for me? and also, i'm supposed to be rinsing my mouth with saltwater today, how much salt to put in water for a quick rinse?
i'm positive i'm supposed to be on these, i wouldn't have them without a prescription from my doctor, duh, which means i'm supposed too. one of them is anti inflammatory and pain, the other is just anti inflammatory, the other is just pain, and the last is to not make me nauseous with the pain.
  Nausea is normal after any surgery because of the pain medications and the anesthesia that you go under. Take it easy for a few days, and if it doesn't get better call the dentist. The promethazine helps with the nausea, but it might not help 100%. You might also feel this way because you're not eating like you normally do. Drink lots of water and juice and eat whatever you can.

As for the salt water, use as much as it takes for the water to taste salty. It's not an exact science.
Teeth whitening after tetracycline hydrochloride?
I've tried Britesmile and it didn't do much at all. Anyone know of any other system that will work after taking tetracycline hydrochloride?
  Your NOT going to find anything that will remove that staining.

Zoom Whitening, is the best system out there, that i have seen. I perform the Zoom Whitening Treatment in my office. Plain and simple it wont whiten Tetracycline stains. Nothing will.... Not even, Internal Bleaching. I've seen it (internal bleaching by the doctors) and done it (the Zoom treatment).. and its just NOT going to happen.
what are lincomycin hydrochloride and lidocaine hydrochloride gel use for?
  Lincomycin hydrochloride is mainly used for fighting respiratory tract and soft tissue infections.

there's another type: It is indicated for the infections due to Staphylococcus,Streptococcus Pneumococcus and anaerobes. It may cause enteritis of pseudo-menbrane after prolonged administration. Patients with hepatic insufficiency should use prudently.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is used as a pain reliever. Lidocaine (lignocaine) belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. Lidocaine acts to block temporarily the pathway of pain impulses along nerve fibres. This relieves or prevents pain in the area where it has been injected. This preparation is injected to provide local anaesthesia for minor procedures, such as dental surgery.

you can check out these websites. it's good. good luck!
pseudoephedrine hydrochloride?
I failed a drug test for meth-amphetamine. I don't do drugs, so I was wondering if pseudoephedrine hydrochloride contained some type of ingredient to cause this. I took Sudafed 12 hour sinus relief.
  yes it could of caused a positive result-- this is one of the chemicals used to make meth. it should be out of your system in 3 to 5 days-- ask for another test

Where to Buy PROMETHAZINE VC W/ CODEINE SYRUP without prescription?
  Anywhere outside the US Either Mexico or Canada. Have friends?? Take a trip or call someone and have them send it. I agree with you -- it is the BEST cough syrup there is. It is the only one I use. When I go to the Dr. Office I ask him to write it for 16oz so I don't need refills so often. The co-pay is the same as a normally prescribed 4oz bottle. Good luck, and stay healthy.

how well does promethazine(promethegan) work for nausea?
cali chic
  It works very well. It is inexpensive, many people find it makes them sleepy however. I newer drug zofran works just as well without the drowsiness, but is much more expensive. Both are by prescription
What is the difference between Promethazine w/codeine and Tussionex?

Is Pramoxine hydrochloride the same as hydrocortisone acetate?
I used hydrocortisone for relief of some eczema around my mouth and it worked fine. I was wondering if Pramoxine hydrochloride is the same thing? I did some searching and they both show up together.

  Pramoxine is a topical anesthetic used to reduce itching.
Hydrocortisone is a steroid.
Betaine Hydrochloride (HCL) ok during pregnancy?
I am having problems digesting my food. I am 5 months pregnant. My Dr. told me to take Betaine hydrochloride and pepsin with my meals to help me digest (HCL). Is this safe during pregnancy? My Dr says it is, but I see conflicting reports on the web.
  What you are seeing on the web is talking about exposure to vapors of hydrochloric acid, not about taking pills with a meal. Sort of like saying you can't drink from the municipal water supply because it is treated with chlorine when we know that chlorine gas is poison, especially to babies.

However, if you are still concerned, there are alternatives. You can take digestive bitters (Chamomile, Chickory, Gentian or a product called Swedish Bitters) at the start of a meal to increase your production of HCL. Also very helpful to sip vinegar water with meals. Mix 2-3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar and equal amount of honey in a little hot water. After it's dissolved, add cool water until it tastes pleasant.

Any difference between different types of diphenhydramine hydrochloride?
I go through quite a bit of benadryl to deal with allergies. Is there any reason why I shouldn't start buying the cheap, generic over-the-counter sleep aids containing the same dose (25mg) of diphenhydramine hydrochloride as benadryl?
  If you live in the United States then the FDA should ensure that any product advertised as containing 25mg dephenhydramine HCL will be the same as benadryl (the pink ones). If you take the green ones it'll have additional ingredients as well.

Thanks but this isn't a site and cannot find what you want me to read....really need someone who knows the answer as I have already searched the net before coming on here and asking!!
Thanks formley_bob :o)
Can someone tell me why most MDs don't recommend taking the antihistamine DYPHENHYDRAMINE HCL (25mg) for sleep?
Diphenhydramine has sedative properties and is widely used in nonprescription sleep aids with a maximum recommended dose of 50 mg (as the hydrochloride salt) being mandated by the U.S. FDA. In the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and other countries, a 50–100 mg recommended dose is permitted.

The drug is an ingredient in several products sold as sleep aids, either alone or in combination with other ingredients such as acetaminophen (paracetamol). An example of the latter is Tylenol PM. Examples of products having diphenhydramine as the only active ingredient include Unisom gelcaps (the tablet form contains doxylamine, a different active ingredient), Tylenol Simply Sleep, Nytol, and Sominex (the version sold in the US; that sold in the UK uses promethazine).
Thanks for ALL your great answers!!!
  A question I was also frustrated with! I think most doctors don't recommend it because it is really easy to build a tolerance to it, and then you don't have that as an option for allergies etc.

I wish allergy specialist would warn you as well. I had an appt with an allergy specialist, and they did not warn me that tylenol pm was actually acetaminophen and dyphenhydramine.
It definitely needs to be marked on the bottles and doctors need to advise patients to try it short term before giving an Rx for a "knock you out" pill. If your sleep disorder is associated with something other than a short term sleep slump, then the dyphenhydramine won't work anyway.

I also wish they would have people look into Melatonin in the supplement aisle. Worked like a charm for a couple of my family members, but didn't help me much.
Where can you buy Promethazine w/Codeine VC?
Or something comparable .. do they carry it at like cvs or other pharmecys ? I don't have a prescription!!! and how much does it cost?

What is the difference of robitussin DM and promethazine DM?
Aren't they the same? let me know so I can take it since I have a common cold and cough while I am pregnant!
I love my angels
  I dont think you should take either while pregnant. They both have a bit of narcotics in them.

I would suggest hot tea, warm saline mouth wash (gurggle, and swallow if you want), hard peppermint candies, and a saline nose spray.

Also, being that you are preg, you may want to contact your doc about your 'common' cough and cold. While it very well could be nothing more than weather change issues, if you are sick, you probably need to know.

Here are a couple links for you to look at,3915,550389%7CPromethazine+DM,00.html

The robitussin is dextromethorphan and guaifenesin

The promethazine is phenegran and dextromethorphan

The only thing that are the same is the dm......

I am feeling ill and thought that perhaps an aspirin would do (325mg) Well it didn't. I took the aspirin about an hour ago. How long do I have to wait until I take theraflu? acetaminophen 650 mg, diphenhydramine hydrochloride 25 mg, phenylephrine hydrochloride 10 mg

How much yellow promethazine syrup DM can kill you?
Not attempting a suicide here, just took 4 OZ and wondering how much is to much
AMERICAN GOD, you're worthless
don dee
  Whats this now? Is there a good reason you're asking how to kill someone, you better have one.
You better not be planning something cause I will personally track you down and find out what dose is needed!
You will respect the law and others in this great nation or you will taste your own poison in a maximum security penitentiary, and believe you me, syrup won't be your biggest problem!

Is it safe to drink promethazine with codeine that is 6 months expired?
Wondering because I don't want to waste this prescription...

  Never recycle medications. If you don't need it any more, return it to the pharmacy for safe destruction. If you think you need more medication talk to your doctor. Do not self-medicate. It's not safe.
How Many Fexofenadine Hydrochloride Can I Have In One Day?
I am 15, and have been prescribed fexofenadine hydrochloride 120mg. How many of these can i take a day for added effectiveness?
i am prescribed to take 1 a day, but is it safe to take more?
  More is not always better, and it's true in this case. If you are prescribed 1 a day then it's not safe to take more.
Is there a risk of addiction to the paracetamol tablet under the brand name UNIFLU?
Uniflu tabs contains among others (i) paracetamol 500mg, (ii) diphenhydramine hydrochloride 15mg, (iii) phenylephrine hydrochloride 10mg. It is indicated for symptomatic relief from influenza, colds, nasal & sinus congestions, coughing, fever, headaches, allergic conditions, hayfever, etc.

  There is no physiological mechanism by which anyone can become addicted to paracetamol. There have been reports of addiction to combination products where paracetamol is combined with an opioid medicine, but this has nothing to do with the paracetamol component.
Phenylephrine hydrochloride has had cases of addiction however tolerance is more reported and is recognised in most countries as non addictive.
Im more concerned about diphenhydramine hydrochloride which continuous use of this medication can lead to dependency and addiction.

I suggest you seek medical help if you feel you are unable to stop taking this medication
