You may take Prochlorperazine with or without food.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you have any of these conditions:

- epilepsy (seizures or fits)
- Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease
- heart, thyroid, liver or kidney disease
- myasthenia gravis (a condition that causes muscle weakness)
- glaucoma (high pressure in the eyes)

Prochlorperazine may affect the ability of your body to adjust to temperature changes in the environment. Avoid exposure to very cold or very hot environments.

For as long as you are taking Prochlorperazine, you will need to have regular blood tests to make sure that your blood counts are normal. Your doctor will advise you about how often you need to have these blood tests.

If you are going for an operation, including minor operations and dental work, inform your doctor or dentist that you are being treated with Prochlorperazine.

Do not give this medicine to a child unless specifically directed to do so by the child's doctor.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Prochlorperazine may not be suitable for you if you are taking sleeping pills or medicines used to treat epilepsy (also known as fits or seizures).

Do not take Prochlorperazine if you are allergic to a group of medicines known as phenothiazines.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Avoid alcohol.

Why do I need this medicine?

Prochlorperazine is used to treat nausea and vomiting.

It is also used to manage mood and behavioural changes in some psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia and psychosis.

Prochlorperazine is also used short-term for the management of anxiety.

What side effects could I experience?

Some common side effects with Prochlorperazine include difficulty sleeping, tiredness, weakness, agitation, anxiety, constipation, weight gain, blocked nose, headache, nausea and stomach discomfort.

Your skin may become more sensitive to sunlight. Try to avoid the sun. Apply sunblock, use an umbrella or wear a hat to minimise sunlight exposure if you do go out under the sun.

Inform your doctor if any of these side effects become severe or refuse to go away.

Prochlorperazine may make you feel drowsy or dizzy. If you feel drowsy or dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

You may experience dizziness when getting up from a sitting or lying down position, especially if you are taking Prochlorperazine for the first time. This is normal and should disappear gradually as you get used to the medicine. It will help if you get up slowly from a sitting or lying position.

Inform your doctor immediately if you experience abnormal movements of your limbs, muscle stiffness, drooling and tremors (Parkinson's disease like symptoms) or if you develop unexplained fever.

Sometimes you may experience worm like movements of the tongue and other involuntary movements of the face, mouth or jaw. These uncontrolled movements may also involve the arms and legs. This condition is known as "tardive dyskinesia" and occurs when you have taken Prochlorperazine for a prolonged period of time. Sometimes it can even occur after you have stopped taking Prochlorperazine. Alert your doctor immediately if you experience this problem.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Alert your doctor if you are taking any of these medicines:

- sleeping pills
- medicines that cause drowsiness such as opioid painkillers (e.g. morphine), antihistamines
- medicines for mood or psychiatric problems including lithium
- epilepsy medicines such as phenytoin, carbamazepine or phenobarbitone
- medicines used to treat Parkinson's disease such as levodopa
- medicines which affect heart rhythm such as quinidine, sotalol, procainamide, midodrine, dofetilide

- diuretics (water pills)
- blood-thinning medicines such as warfarin
- desferrioxamine (a medicine to remove excess iron in the blood)
- diabetes medicines such as glimepiride, metformin and repaglinide

Prochlorperazine must not be taken together with antacids as antacids can reduce the effectiveness of Prochlorperazine. If you must take antacids, take between meals at least 2 hours after you have taken Prochlorperazine.

Always inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal tonics, supplements and medicines that you buy without a prescription.
