Alternatives To Compazine For Nausea
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

You need to see a GI doctor and work with them to find cause! ...Read more

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
