- How does promethazine work for migraines?
Promethazine works by blocking a chemical called histamine, which can cause inflammation and swelling in your blood vessels. This helps reduce pain and nausea caused by migraines. Some antihistamines are known to trigger migraines and should be avoided if you have them regularly. Promethazine is one that’s less likely to cause headaches or trigger migraines.
- Are there any precautions that should be taken when using promethazine?
Be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before taking anything that contains promethazine. It is important that you let them know if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or allergies. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it's especially important that you consult with your provider prior to taking promethazine. They will be able to recommend an alternative medication should they feel it would be in your best interest. Be sure that you take promethazine exactly as directed by your provider.
- Are there any side effects of taking promethazine?
Promethazine can cause side effects. Some of these side effects include restlessness, drowsiness, dizziness, and a feeling of excitement (euphoria). The reason that promethazine may cause these reactions is because it contains an antihistamine which blocks histamine in our bodies. Histamine may impact sleep and alertness. If any of these side effects persist or worse, tell your medical provider.
- How do I take promethazine?
Promethazine comes in a pill form. Your provider will prescribe you how much to take and how often to take it. For treating or preventing nausea and vomiting, promethazine is typically taken every 4 to 6 hours as needed. Take promethazine exactly as directed.
- How quickly does promethazine work?
It will take approximately 30-60 minutes to feel relief from pain or nausea after taking promethazine. However, it is recommended that you take promethazine at a time when you will not need to be active, especially if you are sensitive to sedatives.
- Can I take promethazine with other medications?
Promethazine can interact with other medications, including antidepressants, MAO inhibitors, and other antihistamines. Tell your medical provider about any other prescriptions, OTC medications, and supplements you’re taking or plan to take.
