What Medication To Avoid If Allergic To Compazine
Some similar drugs: Prochlorperazine (compazine) is a phenothiazine type of drug. Other phenothiazine drugs include: Promethazine (phenergan), Chlorpromazine (thorazine), Fluphenazine (prolixin), trifluoperazine (stelazine), etc... A person allergic to Compazine (prochlorperazine) may choose to avoid other drugs of the same type, but it is hard to predict which similar drug he will react to.See 1 more doctor answer
If I am allergic to Compazine (prochlorperazine) (tongue swelled up 26 years ago!), is it safe to take Hydroxyzine? Always told to be aware of "zine" drugs.
They are not close: In this case, the name does NOT tell you much about the chemical structure of the drug and these two are not very similar and do NOT generally cross react at all. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, and you could have reactions to more than one drug regardless of which two drugs we choose, but these two drugs aren't closely related.
For GI issues. Taking Ranitidine, Carafate, Compazine, (prochlorperazine) and GasX... any contradictions interactions to watch out for? Medications by primary dr. And Gastroenterology dr.
Ok: These medications all have different mechanisms of action and I don't think there are contraindications or interactions to worry about. In situations or questions like this, your pharmacist, who has access to information about almost all medications, can be very helpful.See 1 more doctor answer
No problem: The components in nauzene are innocuous.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: They are in different drug classes and should not cross react. However they are not usually given for the same indication. If you are looking for a good substitute for nausea a better choice would be zofran and/ or possibly dramamine. Phenergan (promethazine) is very sedating and may not be tolerated but is also a possibility if looking for nausea solution. Antivert is acceptable.See 1 more doctor answer
If I'm allergic to compazine (prochlorperazine) could I be allergic to any of the ingredients in my birth control minastrin 24 FE?
Unlikely: No cross -reactivity between the drugs included, if any problem, stop the medication and call your doctor
I'm allergic to Compazine, was recently prescribed reglan (metoclopramide) and it gave me the same side affects. Was the dr right in giving me relan?
Probable: You have an idiosyncratic response to these two drugs. The neuromuscular responses may be quite similar but these two drugs do not share similar allergenic or chemical structure. I can't tell you whether it is appropriate for the doctor to prescribe Reglan (metoclopramide) for you not knowing much about your history or previous response to alternate therapy.
If someone has a dystonic reaction to compazine (prochlorperazine) does that mean they're allergic or is that just the result of the dopamine receptor blockade?
Compazine (prochlorperazine): It's not an allergic reaction, it is a side effect as you described in your question.
How are antipsychaotic drugs like compazine (prochlorperazine) used for sedation and psychosis when they cause akithesia and dystonia? I've seen it make people crazier
I had a severe allergic reaction to Compazine years ago... All muscles drew up. I almost died. My doctor now prescribed me Hydroxyzine is it safe?
Hydroxyzine: These medications are NOT from same category (class) of medications. If you had bad reaction to compazine, doesn't mean you cannot take hydroxyzine.
I have lupus and am now taking tacrolimus but it makes me nauseated; I am allergic to zofran. Ideas? Compazine and reglan (metoclopramide) not strong enough.
17 yrs old was prescribed compazine (prochlorperazine) by gp had stomach ach I read that it's a anti psychotic drug effecting dopamine, does that create permanent chgs?
Allergy: Are you allergic to the medication or did you have an adverse reaction. The medication can cause movement disorders in some people. The effect is common across the class (compazine, phenergam, tigan). If you had a rash that is specific to the medication and should not cause problems with other medicationsSee 1 more doctor answer
Oral or IV or IM: If you are taking it for vertigo and IF it is going to work should take effect in 20-30 minutes orally or by dissolving tablet in your mouth but a bit quicker for IV and variable for IM. 2 issues; do you rally have vertigo or is it another problem? Even if you have true vertigo it may not work. If not improving see your doctor.
Yes, cautiously: Caution is advised. The combination may increase the risk of sedation and psychomotor impairment
