Phenergan Elixir

Phenergan Elixir
used to treat hayfever and other allergic conditions such as nettle rash and hives. They can also be used to treat insomnia in adults and to treat/prevent nausea and vomiting such as travel sickness.

Phenergan Elixir contains promethazine hydrochloride, which works by blocking histamine, the natural substance that your body makes during an allergic reaction. It also works directly on the brain to help you feel more relaxed.
Do not take for longer than 7 days. If your symptoms worsen or do not improve after 7 days talk to your doctor or pharmacist. If you feel the effect of your medicine is too weak or too strong, do not change the dose yourself, but ask your doctor.

For allergies (such as hay fever, rashes and hives):
  • Children 2-5 years: Give one to three 5ml spoonfuls once a day OR one 5ml spoonful twice a day. Do not give more than three 5ml spoonfuls (15ml) each day.
  • Children 5-10 years: Give one to five 5ml spoonfuls once a day OR one or two 5ml spoonfuls twice a day. Do not give more than five 5ml spoonfuls (25ml) each day.
  • Children over 10 years and adults (including the elderly): Start with two 5ml spoonfuls twice a day. This may be increased to a maximum of four 5ml spoonfuls three times a day if needed.
For travel sickness:
  • Children 2-5 years: Give one 5ml spoonful the night before the journey. This may be repeated after 6-8 hours if necessary.
  • Children 5-10 years: Give two 5ml spoonfuls the night before the journey. This may be repeated after 6-8 hours if necessary.

  • Talk to your doctor before taking this medicine if you are pregnant, might become pregnant, or think you may be pregnant. Phenergan Elixir should not be taken 2 weeks before birth. You should not take Phenergan Tablets if you are breastfeeding as small amounts may pass into your milk, which can be harmful to your baby.

  • Phenergan Elixir can cause drowsiness. If this happens, do not drive or use any tools or machines.
  • Phenergan Elixir can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so keep out of direct sunlight while taking this medicine.
  • Hydrogenated glucose syrup (maltitol liquid). This is a type of carbohydrate which the body will convert into small amounts of sugar.
