Phenergan Medication Information

There is a lot of information about Phenergan® (promethazine hydrochloride), a medication that is both an antihistamine and a phenothiazine, that you should be aware of before starting treatment. It is most commonly used for treating nausea and vomiting, although the drug is approved to treat motion sickness and allergies as well.
 
Phenergan is approved for use in both adults and children, but should never be given to children younger than two years old.
 
This medicine comes in the form of tablets, rectal suppositories, and syrup, and is usually taken one to three times daily depending on the condition being treated. Phenergan can also be injected intravenously at a hospital, although extra caution must be taken to prevent severe tissue damage.
 
Your healthcare provider will recommend a Phenergan dosage based on several factors. Some of the information that your healthcare provider may consider before making a dosing recommendation include:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Your age and weight (for children)
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
