Promethazine belongs to the group of medicines known as antihistamines. It is used to relieve allergies such as hayfever and allergic skin rashes. It is also a very effective antiemetic. Rapidly relieves vomiting and nausea.
Exposure to substances such as pollen, pet fur, house dust mite or an insect bite can cause your body to produce a chemical called histamine. The release of histamine causes allergic symptoms which can include sneezing, runny or watery eyes and nose, itching and skin rashes. Antihistamines like Promethazine reduce the effects of histamine and help to relieve these symptoms.
Promethazine can also be used to treat sickness, vertigo (loss of balance or dizziness), and to prevent travel sickness. Because Promethazine causes drowsiness, it may also occasionally be used for short periods of time to treat insomnia (difficulty sleeping) in adults.
Before taking Promethazine make sure your doctor or pharmacist knows:
Along with their useful effects, all medicines can cause unwanted side-effects although not everyone experiences them. These usually improve as your body adjusts to the new medicine, but speak with your doctor or pharmacist if any of the following side-effects continue or become troublesome.
|Common side-effects||What can I do if I experience this|
|Drowsiness, dizziness and blurred vision||Make sure your reactions are normal before driving, operating machinery or doing any other jobs which would be dangerous if you are not fully alert or able to see properly. Avoid alcohol|
|Headache||Ask your pharmacist to recommend a suitable painkiller. If the headaches continue, speak with your doctor|
|Dry mouth||Try chewing sugar-free gum or sweets|

If you experience any other symptoms which you think may be due to this medicine, speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
