 5  CrohnsDisease It makes you sedated/drowsy. The oral tablet is best. It will also enhance other medications such as pain medicine so be careful. I have received it in the Hospital through IV and I would advise caution here. It will blow out the IV shortly after getting it, and it burns. I always need another IV. I only get zofran now through IV in the hospital. The oral phenergen is fine. M 48 10 years

 1  Insomnia Made me extremely anxious, at one point I was in fetal position in a bathroom stall scratching my skin and crying because it made me itch so bad. I felt so out of it, I was nodding off every 10 minutes, couldn't concentrate, had dry mouth. After taking it for a while my vision and hearing became slowed/distorted? My short term memory was extremely bad, but hey! at least I could sleep! F 18 4 weeks

 5  Allergies Extreme drowsiness but okay cause i took it after work when i got home and at at bedtime. Ive also recieved this in the hospital for continuous emesis. I wasnt too crazy about an injection so i refused that, but not too happy about having a nurse shove suppositories up my butt either and that was after the dreaded rectal thermometer made its visit. For allergies I received this medication in suppository form also described medically as PR (PER RECTUM). The plus side? Boyfriend gets to give them to me. 28 90 days

 4  Insomnia Severe hangover, drowsiness, difficult to get out of bed. This is a great drug but dosage is important. It said on the back of the box to take 1-2. I thought to myself 'it wouldn't be very sedating seeing as you can use it for allergies' - very big mistake. I was stupid enough to take two 25mg tablets on the first night. It stopped me waking up multiple times in the night which was great. However, it was extremely difficult to get out of bed the next morning, I felt relaxed and high. I also felt drowsy for the entire day after. In my opinion this should not be over the counter medicine. I am going to try taking just one tablet a night to see if it helps without giving side effects. Otherwise I will just ask my GP for something better. Be careful with this drug. M 19 1 days

 4  Nausea during pregnancy Extreme tiredness, moodiness, skin tingling/feeling prickly Phenergan is the only thing that really helps my nausea. It causes a lot of grogginess, topped with normal pregnancy fatigue and it is very hard to function. I need to lay down and nap around 3-4 times and day and go to bed around 8pm. It carries over into the next day. At times I will cry for no reason, nothing triggers it (usually 40 min after taking). I had it administered at the hospital by IV when I was extremely dehydrated, it must have been a high dose because it almost felt like I was messed up, as if I'd been given pain meds but I hadn't. F 25 6 weeks

 5  Insomnia Take one before bed regularly on bad days but not every night. When I have the opportunity to sleep well (childcare) I take 2 tablets and it works wonders! Not too groggy in the morning either but perhaps that's where I am used to taking them now. F 30 100 days

My seizures had been well controlled but when I started this medication they became active, I became depressed and aggravated after taking for a week. F 56 7 days

 4  Insomnia Extreme fatigue, heavy muscles, anxiety increases, loss of coordination, restlessness Works like a charm for getting me to sleep through the night but the side effects the next day are something else. The fatigue I feel is like nothing else I've felt before, I have no energy to even lift my arms up, I try to sleep some more but can't as I feel anxious and restless. F 26 1 days

 3  Insomnia Took 2 hours to get in my system, once it hit me I was not able to concentrate properly it made my memory of past events seem to trigger at a much slower pace than within a normal time period, it was like visually hallucinating but with the memories of a few seconds like what you did in the before being brought to the present with flashing memories of these events almost like my mind was having shocks in a suprised state as these images reached me in the form of flashes. Also made my hyper and very angry before it actually kicked in, 50mg is way to high as a dose in my opinion this drug is no joke, occasionally cause randomised pain upper neck, and my stomach seemed to react oddly with bouts of emotion that I really do not get a lot in life so can't explain that, basically very emotional teared up at a very fast pace. The next day it caused all of that day absolutely tired, completely drained and exhausted, lasted overall 2 days from a single dose. My advise would be to do this short term, everyone has a different reaction as you can tell by these comments alone, but if prescribed it start with half the dose I did just don't jump straight to the highest dose. 35 1 days

 2  Nausea from Levaquin My physician prescribed this to me to combat nausea from strong antibiotic to treat diverticulitis. After I took the first dose I felt a switch flip in my brain. I became depressed and angry and cried on and off throughout the day. When my husband came home I was boiling angry and said mean things to him. I think I may have been having an allergic reaction to this drug. This drug isn't for me. F 53 1 days

 5  Insomnia My pharmacist had writing to take one to two tables before sleeping, my first night I thought these couldnít work & took two, well two was way to much, it knocked me out & I woke up completely groggy the next day, I was a little scared with how strong they were, I then dropped down to 25mg. No more issues These are amazing, I know they say itís not for long term use, but I suffered terribly for over two years before getting any help, using things like night nurse & sleeping pills from friends & so on, Iv been taking these for around 9months, I can not feel any effect from them, I can just put my head down & go to sleep & wake up feeling fresh, if you are having bad side effects, it is because you are taking too much or taking with other drugs that donít mix well, these have given my a normal life again F 33 9 months

 3  Offset Nausea from Hydrocodone This med did its job with easing the nausea and helping me sleep thru the nausea. However- I was incredibly emotionally unstable the next day. I haven't been "sad" in years and this medicine combined with other CNS depressant like Norco- caused strange confusion and just angry the entire following day into the night after taken orally. I thought I was crazy, but It turns out this happens to a lot of people. Try Zofran before you opt for Phenergan- Zofran has never made me crazy like Phenergan did. Everyone's chemistry is different, but we're not alone when it comes to adverse reactions. F 30 1 days
