Allersoothe (Promethazine) is an antihistamine. It releives allergies & allergic conditions such as Hayfever, eczema, dermatitis, hives, allergic reactions due to insect bites, stings and nasal congestion due to common cold.
It is a synthetic drug used to counteract the histamine reaction, as in allergies. Promethazine, introduced into medicine in the 1940s, is used in the form of its hydrochloride. It is administered orally in tablets and syrups and intramuscularly in an aqueous solution. Promethazine is effective in controlling the symptoms of hay fever, acute skin reactions (such as hives), and contact dermatitis (as from poison ivy). It also is used to control the nausea that occurs in motion sickness. The most common side effect of promethazine is drowsiness.
Possible Side Effects
Promethazine often causes sedation. In children less than two it can depress respiration and lead to death. Therefore, it should not be used in children less than two years old. Dizziness may also occur. Ironically, promethazine sometimes stimulates patients, particularly children. Such stimulation may be manifest by restlessness, inability to sleep, heart palpitations or even seizures. Promethazine also causes anticholinergic side effects such as blurred vision, dry mouth, dilated pupils, nausea, urinary retention (inability to urinate), impotence, and constipation.
