someone asked me what meds i am on.

i have been taking Phenergan (promethazine) not stop, every night for x3 years.

i did a bit of research... it seems this drug is very powerful and has some side effects i am experiencing.

i dont have a prescription so perhaps i should stop taking it.

ill then see if i feel more awake and not so desperate.
 
has anyone else experienced any side effects from long term promethazine use?

I take it for anti-nausea occasionally. I had stomach surgery and I'm not allow to throw up. It makes me grouchy and very sleepy.

I wouldn't take it without a prescription. Oops! Typo!

Phenergan elixir and injection both contain sulfites, so I dare not take them for nausea. I would get tachycardia.

I have a bottle of this in my cupboard my gp wouldnt give me valium and said this would help my anxiety LOL . Yes it is very powerful isnt it , if you want too sleep then it sure works wonders . Its orange liquid form i have the stuff is lethal . Just a thought if my gp is prescribing it for anxiety and not for allergies then it must be side effect galore in every respect . I would describe the stuff i got as a sleeping potion .

I have taken 10 mg of Phenergan every night for 2 years with no side effects ....I have bouts of vertigo that have come over the years out of nowhere ..since taking this I have not had one episode ...the couple time in two years that I have felt nausea ..I pop one and in 20-30 mins feel better ...not a wonder drug, but for me it is a drug always on hand ..

I only take it as needed, and prescribed. I wasn't aware it is OTC now.
