    14 yr. old son used this med for nausea resulting from taking Alinia(anti protozoal agent/intestinal infection). Phenergan was taken an hour and a half after taking Alinia. He had involuntary muscle movement and severe nausea for 1 hour.

    I have had many surgeries over the past five years and with every narcotic, for me comes Phenergan. It works great, is terrible for veins, and is painful to administer via IV. Some of the pain can be avoided by diluting with saline. Most hospitals no longer administer it (IV). It works much better and has fewer side effects when taken orally, in my opinion.

    I get severe migraines and end up in the ER with them at least once a month. I am given this along with Benadryl and Toradal(sry about spelling!)The last time I was there, 3 nights ago, the nurse gave me the injection too fast and I thought I was going to die. I shot right up out of bed and couldn't stop shaking. I had trouble breathing and my throat felt like it was closing up. I was so freak ... Show Full Comment

    This is one of the WORST DRUGS ON THE MARKET! If anyone tries to administer it to you, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! They gave this to my mother in the hospital and she lost her mind. The same thing happened to my aunt's husband. DO NOT USE!!! I GIVE THIS "NO" STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
