I have panic attacks.Felt like i was going to get one so i took a phrenilen forte capsule, it relaxed me i felt better.Could this be used for panic a?

Barbituate: Phrenilin forte (acetaminophen and butalbital) contains butalbital & acetaminophen. It is a strong medication called a barbituate. It is used to treat tension headaches. This is not an appropriate medication for panic attacks. If you have panic attacks please see your doctor for a non-addictive medication choice and consider cognitive behavioral therapy. Take care. ...Read more

I have been taking phenegren for about 4 months with a hydrocodone and have read some of the side effects and feel like I have some, therefore I want ?

See Doc: Why would you need to take these two medications for so long? The least you would get is chronic constipation. You need to see your doctor to find out what would be a better option for the condition and to get off of these medications gradually since you have likely become addicted to them. Don't wait. ...Read more

I take one 50 mg. Ultram morning & afternoon daily along with 25 mg phenegren together 3 months now. Am i at risk for serotonin syndrome?

Not Probable: Generally serotonin syndrome with tramadol is associated with various psychiatric/depression medications however not associated with phenergan (promethazine). Phenergan (promethazine) may however increase or decrease tramadol metabolite which can result in increased risk of side effects like sedation, respiratory depression or even seizures. ...Read more

I have brochitis can't stop coughing literally. I even took phengren not to throw up and have coughed so much that i've thrown up what can I do?

Differntal: It sounds like your cough is very frustrating to you and is clearly interfering with your life. Patients who cough to the point of throwing up make me suspicious of either pertussis (whooping cough) or cough variant asthma. I think it is time to visit your physician. ...Read more

Can i take 50 mg tramadol & 25 mg phenegren tablet together? Also i'm starting prednisone today. Can i mix all 3?

Can i take  50 mg tramadol &  25 mg phenegren tablet together? Also i'm starting prednisone today. Can i mix all 3?

Synergistic : If the ultram makes you tired the Phenergan (promethazine) will increase that sensation. The Prednisone will actually tend to make you more awake. The combination is unpredictable but at the dosage you have listed would be safe. I would recommend taking the Prednisone with food to keep from having an upset stomach. Always disclose all medicines you are taking to each of your physicians. ...Read more

Is phenergen safe during pregnancy. I had vomiting and dehydration so they prescribed this in ER. Can I use it daily?

Consult with OB: Phenergan (aka promethazine) is typically a 3rd line agent for nausea and vomiting in pregnancy because it is a class C drug for pregnancy (animal studies show possible risk to fetus) but may be required for severe cases. First line therapy is dietary changes followed by vitamin b6 (pyridoxine) and doxylamine both pregnancy class A (studies have failed to show risk to the fetus) safe alternatives ...Read more

Got a toradol and phenagren shot for severe migrane yesterday still have severe headache. Do i need to go back to the doctor?

Perhaps: Migraine headaches go through prodromal and postdromal phases, but can rebound after pain medications. Would phone doc and discuss as perhaps your best future approach involves preventative meds. Or perhaps a better outcome may be achieved by using a long-acting triptan such as Frova (frovatriptan) at the very start of the headache. ...Read more

Is oil of oregano safe to take with my other meds? Zoloft, (sertraline) avapro, phentermine, phenergen, paracetamol and ibuprofen?

See below: The first question is why are you taking oil of oregano? What is your purpose for using it? Despite the hype, there is no persuasive evidence to demonstrate that oil of oregano does anything useful in or on our bodies. And while it is popular, there is no science to support the use of oil of oregano for any medical condition. ...Read more
