I used Pheregan also and I take 25mg like 3x a day if I need it. I wouldnt take more than 100mg of it. I am down to taking it only when im nauseas which is not so much any more than im on day 5. Go to WEDMD.com and look up Phenergan and see what it says. I know if you take more than you should it causes breathing problems. If I can be any help to you. Post me back!! I have been taking Promethazine/Phenergan for 3 years.

Hi, phenergan is just an anti-nausea medication that has a side effect of really strong drowsiness.  It causes me to be tired the whole next day even when I have had to tak it.  It does work well if you are sick with nausea and the drowsiness side effect would definitely help you sleep.  It is a prescription medication that is available in tablet, suppository, or in a gel form that you can rub on your skin.

I was give phenergan because i am very anxious, to the point i dont go out. I have suffered with depression & anxiety for a long time. My life is a constant battle with my mind. Anyways ive been put on different antidepressants,beta blockers,diazepam i cant remember all them. So about the phenergan, ok for the past few years i have been on and of abusing the phenergan, at this point i am taking 10 25mg every night. I tried all the sleepers ie tamazepam,zopyclone,zolpiderm...... nothing else works, i could take 10 zolpiderm and sit up all night. With the phenergan i can sleep from say 10pm until 6am without waking once! But i am scared, i no i am addicted, usually i take 10 and lie down, i start to feel very weak & sick then i black out until morning. There are side affects like chronic pain in my joints and pitting edema in my feet and legs. I live in the uk and phenergan IS available over the counter, it costs £5.?? for a box of 56 25mg. I dont no anyone else in the same situation as myself, that is why i have told my storey on here. Please get in touch if you can help or are inn the same boat. xx thanks guys

This is what Webmd.com says about how to use Phenergan:


Take this medication by mouth with or without food, usually 4 times daily as needed or as directed by your doctor. For motion sickness, promethazine should be taken 30-60 minutes before beginning travel. If needed, the dose may be repeated 8 to 12 hours later as directed. For continued travel, your doctor may direct you to take promethazine twice a day, in the morning and before the evening meal. For allergies, this medication may be taken at bedtime to decrease daytime drowsiness. When used before surgery, promethazine may be taken the night before or just before the procedure and may be continued afterwards.
If you are using the liquid form, use a medication measuring device to carefully measure the prescribed dose. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose.
Dosage is based on your age, medical condition, and response to therapy. Take this medication exactly as directed to get the most benefit from it. Do not take more medication or take it more often than prescribed. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions.

Just as a warning from someone who has had this happen.  If you take to much of this it well cause major stomach problems.  I still can not take this orally after 7 years due to the fact that I can not take the oral version of this without throwing it back up.  I would not take more then 100 mg per time and not more then 4 times as day.  If you are thaking this to sleep you may want to talk to your Dr. about Xanax.  Xanax works on me both to quite me down as well as relax my muscles.  

Most of all if you are taking a more over dose of Phenergan you really need to talk to you Dr. and find something that works without taking way more then you should take.

Hello all,
   Promethazine (Phenergan) should NOT be taken with metoclopramide (Reglan) at the same time. They are not the same thing, yet they do treat most of the same symptoms.

The following applies to:Reglan (metoclopramide) and Phenergan (promethazine) when taken together:

Major health risks, do not combine the two...

CONTRAINDICATED: Coadministration of metoclopramide with phenothiazines, neuroleptics, or other antidopaminergic agents (e.g., tetrabenazine) may increase the frequency and severity of extrapyramidal reactions (i.e., acute dystonic reactions, tardive dyskinesia, akathisia, Parkinson-like symptoms) due to additive antidopaminergic effects. By itself, metoclopramide can cause acute dystonic reactions in approximately 0.2% of patients treated with the usual adult dosages of 30 to 40 mg/day. These reactions are typically seen during the first 24 to 48 hours of treatment, occur more frequently in pediatric and adult patients less than 30 years of age, and are increased with higher dosages. Symptoms may include involuntary movements of limbs, facial grimacing, torticollis, oculogyric crisis, rhythmic protrusion of tongue, bulbar type of speech, trismus, opisthotonus (tetanus-like reactions), and rarely, stridor and dyspnea due to laryngospasm. Dystonic reactions usually respond to treatment with anticholinergic agents such as diphenhydramine or benztropine. Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a potentially irreversible and disfiguring disorder characterized most frequently by involuntary movements of the tongue, face, mouth, or jaw, and less frequently by involuntary movements of the trunk and/or extremities. Movements may be choreoathetotic in appearance. Although the risk of TD with metoclopramide has not been extensively studied, a prevalence of 20% has been reported in one study among patients treated for at least 12 weeks. The risk is increased in the elderly, women, and diabetic populations; however, it is not possible to predict which patients will develop TD. Both the risk of developing TD and the likelihood that TD will become irreversible increase with duration of treatment and total cumulative dose. There is no known effective treatment. In some patients, TD may remit, partially or completely, within several weeks to months after metoclopramide is withdrawn. Akathisia, or motor restlessness, consist of feelings of anxiety, agitation, jitteriness, and insomnia, as well as inability to sit still, pacing, and foot tapping. Symptoms may disappear spontaneously or respond to a reduction in dosage. Parkinsonian-like symptoms may include bradykinesia, tremor, cogwheel rigidity, and mask-like facies. These symptoms most commonly occur within the first 6 months of metoclopramide therapy and subside within 2 to 3 months following drug discontinuation.

MANAGEMENT: Due to the potential for increased risk of serious and potentially irreversible extrapyramidal reactions, metoclopramide should not be prescribed in combination with other antidopaminergic agents. In addition, metoclopramide should not be used for longer than 12 weeks except in rare cases where therapeutic benefit is anticipated to outweigh the risk of developing tardive dyskinesia.

I know this is an older post, but for those who are using it for info... this is, well, FYI.  Stay healthy, Peace.

As a nurse can say Reglan is totally different and not even close to the same as Phenergan... please research or know before just posting something.
