    I thought that I was loosing my mind. This medication was combined with a pain killer, Demorol, and given to me in an ER. For days after, I suffered from redness, flushing, and tremors. It is the worst drug I have ever taken and do not understand why it is ever prescribed.

    I suffer from daily migraines for well over a year now and compazine aids in the nausea I experience and has for months now, PRN. One evening I was with my family and I had taken the med the night prior and I started having a distonic reaction, it was like I was seizing. My muscles would tighten up and contract and my extremities would uncontrollably twitch, which resulted in an ambulance trip. Th ... Show Full Comment

    I was giving this med for nausea. I took it evry night for a month and had violent shakings for 10 to 15 minutes. I have been off the pill for a week and still get shaking spells during the night. The side effects of this drug are worse than my illness. I will never take it again. I think this drug needs to be reviewed.

About a week after I began using compazine, I started experiencing blurry vision and extreme jitteriness. I had this happen to me a couple times in one day, each episode lasting no more than 1 hour. I decided to lay down and try to sleep it off. Before I could get relaxed, my neck began experie ... Show Full Comment

    I took Compazine for a few days, woke up the next morning and felt really strange. I couldn't get comfortable anywhere. After a little while I finally went back to sleep. A few hours later I woke up again I started to feel extremely depressed. More than I've ever been in my entire life. Then my jaw started to lock up, my eyes began rolling up into my head and all the muscles in my back and ... Show Full Comment
