Isnt Phenergan different between Australia and U.S???

Postby nikki0072004 » Mar 23, 2005 10:08 am


I just saw someone saying below they were on Phenergan in the U.S and Australia.

I used to live in Australia, and my brother is always on Phenergan for allergies. I thought it was a anti-allergy med?

Is it the same here in the U.S? I guess I never knew that it had a alternate use other than for sickness, but is it also used for allergies????

So confusing!!!

I found this on a website, so I guess it's used for a variety of ailments.

Phenergan is an antihistamine that relieves nasal stuffiness and inflammation and red, inflamed eyes caused by hay fever and other allergies. It is also used to treat itching, swelling, and redness from hives and other rashes; allergic reactions to blood transfusions; and, with other medications, anaphylactic shock (severe allergic reaction).

Phenergan is also used as a sedative and sleep aid for both children and adults, and is prescribed to prevent and control nausea and vomiting before and after surgery and to prevent and treat motion sickness. It is also used, with other medications, for pain after surgery.
