What is Generic Compazine?
Prochlorperazine presents certain risks that are non present in benzodiazepines - which tend to be used for such treatment. Prochlorperazine is a phenothiazine derivative available in tablet form. Prochlorperazine has the ability to be abused and while it is not known to deliver the euphoria that is often delivered by more commonly abused drugs, it can still alter mood and perception, increasing its demand among recreational users.
If Prochlorperazine is taken in too large a dose, it can be fatal. Those who take the medication outside of medical treatment put themselves at risk of accidental overdose.
The drug can also damage specific organs when it is taken in large doses over a long period of time. A dependence and tolerance can develop, which can drive the individual to continue to seek more of the drug.
The nurse gave him some Ativan to counteract the results and he was able to get calmed down slightly. However, now 2-3 weeks later he has been up several times in the night still experiencing the same side effects. He never experienced this prior to taking Compazine. DO NOT Take this medication. I couldn't take the stomach pain anymore. Called mom to take me to the E. I wanted to rip my I. I thought about it, and didn't say anything to mom or the nurses.
I couldn't stop thinking about taking that I. The "cocktail" did make me feel better temperaily but I can't say that it was worth it. I would rather stay puking my guts out with a pounding migraine then feel like that ever again.
I suggest you please tell your nurse or doctor right away if you have any negative symptoms of compazine. To make matters worse, the nurse gave it to me even when I asked her not to, and then told me to stop freaking out while I was having a panic attack.
Always make sure that you ask your doctor or nurse what they are about to give you. Don't let yourself or your loved ones get injected with this panic poison!!.

Following that will only take Zofran if needed. I have Compazine and Ativan to take as needed and was wondering if anyone had an advice on one versus the other. I was prescribed about 6 different anti-nausea meds while on chemo. Pretty much just stuck with Zofran and a little marijuana when the Zofran wouldn't work.
Generic Compazine side effects
I think sometimes we read more into the side effects which can be scary if you dont have the experience to go with it. They are required to put any and all possible side effects for informed consent. Another good medication our Nephrologist uses is Reglan which also has been around for a very long time. It seems like more drugs nowadays have more side effects because the FDA now requires all possible side effects be disclosed.
It didn't use to be like that. In fact, years ago, they didn't have to disclose any of them.
Common Generic Compazine ide effects may include:
However, the syndrome can develop, although much less commonly, after relatively brief treatment periods at low doses.
Prochlorperazine presents certain risks that are non present in benzodiazepines - which tend to be used for such treatment.
She could go on but would only be replicating a GOOGLE search.
I wasn't expecting that.
It can either be due to the introduction of a medication or come about in response to withdrawal from medication. The doctors will not admit their precious drugs are a problem, drugs are their business. You have to look out for YOU. These are just the most well known for the potential to cause Akathisia.
Where can I get more information?
Add to that the nationwide shortage of intravenous Ativan and Versed and one has to wonder how hospitals can even stay open when such vital medications, standard of care in many circumstances, aren't available to treat patients.
Terrible drug for nausea,might work well for a different use,as intended.
