Will compazine (prochlorperazine) help my nausea but. Also help me go to sleep. My adderal is still working even after 6hrs and I just want a good night sleep?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) insomnia: Yes, it can cause drowsiness as a serendipitous side effect and help nausea. Need to take adderall earlier, it seems. Be careful with compazine (prochlorperazine). It is supposed to be able to cause movement disorders, although I personally have never seen it happen. I prefer ondansetron (Zofran) for nausea or Tigan for that reason. ...Read more

Those meds are fine if you have a stomach flu and need to get over the hump for a week, but chronic use of them screams for getting further evaluation to figure out why you have this symptom. You need to see a GI doctor and work with them to find cause! ...Read more

May not work: The recommended directions are to take one or two twice a day. If you have only used one a time, wait until time for the next dose (12 hours after the last) and try two. They are meant to be absorbed through the tissue in the mouth so let them just sit there-don't swallow them. If you have used two at a time for at least two doses, I would presume they are not effective and would contact yourGP ...Read more
