Phenergan® (promethazine hydrochloride) is a prescription medicine approved for treating nausea or vomiting, allergies, motion sickness, and various other conditions.
 
A typical dosage for treating nausea and vomiting in adults is Phenergan 12.5 to 25 mg every four to six hours as needed. For children, healthcare provider will determine the amount based on your child's weight.
 
The standard recommended dosage of Phenergan for treating allergies is 25 mg before bedtime. For treating allergic reactions (such as reactions to blood transfusions), a typical dose is 25 mg. This may be repeated within two hours if necessary.
