Prochlorazine Indication

Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) belongs to the group of medications known as antipsychotics, and specifically to the family of antipsychotics called phenothiazines. It is used to treat the symptoms of psychotic disorders such as excessive anxiety, tension, confusion, delusions, and agitation. It works by affecting the chemical balance in the brain.

It also can be used to treat or prevent nausea and vomiting caused by the use of certain medications (e.g., cancer treatments) or Motion Sickness. When used for nausea and vomiting, the doses are much lower than those used for psychotic disorders. Accordingly, there are fewer side effects.

Your doctor may have suggested Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. As well, some forms of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Prochlorazine Dosage

For treatment of psychiatric illness, the initial recommended adult dose of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) is 10 mg 3 or 4 times daily. Your doctor will gradually increase this dose until your symptoms are under control. The doses vary according to the condition being treated.

For treatment of nausea and vomiting, the recommended adult dose of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) is usually 5 mg to 10 mg, 3 or 4 times daily.

Children's doses are usually based on weight.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Prochlorazine Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine).

Abnormal heart rhythms: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) can cause abnormal heart rhythms. Certain medications (e.g., Sotalol, quinidine, thioridazine, Chlorpromazine, Pimozide, moxifloxacin, Mefloquine, pentamidine, arsenic trioxide,  probucol, Tacrolimus) can increase the risk of a type of abnormal heart rhythm called QT prolongation, and should not be used in combination with prochlorpromazine.

You are more at risk for this type of abnormal heart rhythm and its complications if you:

  • are female
  • are older than 65 years of age
  • have a family history of sudden cardiac death
  • have a history of heart disease or abnormal heart rhythms
  • have a slow heart rate
  • have congenital prolongation of the QT interval
  • have Diabetes
  • have had a Stroke
  • have low potassium, magnesium, or calcium levels
  • have nutritional deficiencies

Alcohol: The effects of alcohol may be increased by the use of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine).

Behaviour changes: Although Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) is intended to have a calming effect on thought processes, occasionally it can cause agitation, anxiety, or increased psychotic behaviours.

If you experience these side effects or notice them in a family member who is taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), contact your doctor immediately. You should be closely monitored by your doctor for emotional and behaviour changes while taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine).

Blood Clots: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may increase the chance of blood clot formation, causing reduction of blood flow to organs or the extremities.

If you have a history of clotting you may be at increased risk of experiencing blood clot-related problems such as Heart Attack, stroke, or clots in the deep veins of your leg. Discuss with your doctor how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms such as sharp pain and swelling in the leg, difficulty breathing, chest pain, blurred vision or difficulty speaking, contact your doctor immediately.

Blood counts: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) can decrease the number of neutrophils (a type of white blood cell that helps fight infection), red blood cells (which carry oxygen), and platelets (which help your blood to clot). Your doctor will do blood tests to monitor this. If you notice any signs of infection (e.g., fever, chills, or sore throat) or unusual bleeding or bruising, contact your doctor immediately.

Body temperature: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) affects the body's natural mechanisms for keeping body temperature within a normal range. People who exercise vigorously, are exposed to extreme heat, are dehydrated, or are taking anticholinergic medications (e.g., Benztropine, Oxybutynin) are more at risk. Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you feel very hot and are unable to cool.

Exposure to extreme heat or being in heat for a long period of time can result in severe overheating that can be fatal.

Constipation: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) slows down the speed that things travel through the digestive system causing constipation. If constipation develops, talk to your doctor as soon as possible. Constipation that is allowed to continue can become a serious problem.

Depression: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may cause depression or make the symptoms of depression worse. If you have depression or a history of depression, discuss with your doctor how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of depression such as poor concentration, changes in weight, changes in sleep, decreased interest in activities, or notice them in a family member who is taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Diabetes: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may cause an increase in blood sugar levels and glucose tolerance may change. You may find it necessary to monitor your blood sugar more frequently while using Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine).

If you have diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you develop signs of high blood sugar, such as a fruity odour to the breath, increased thirst, hunger, and increased need to urinate overnight.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Do not drive, operate machinery, or perform other potentially hazardous tasks until you have determined how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) affects you.

Glaucoma: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may make the symptoms of glaucoma worse. If you have glaucoma, discuss with your doctor how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: People taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may have changes in liver function that produce abnormal liver test results. Your doctor will recommend regular liver tests while you are taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine). If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Movement disorders: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), like other antipsychotic medications can cause difficulty with daily movements. If you notice a fine tremor, difficulty moving muscles, unusual stiffness and trouble starting to move, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS): Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), like other antipsychotic medications, can cause a potentially fatal syndrome known as neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). Get immediate medical attention if you notice symptoms of NMS such as high fever, muscle stiffness, confusion or loss of consciousness, sweating, racing or irregular heartbeat, or fainting.

Pesticides: People who take Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) are cautioned against exposure to certain types of insecticides, called organophosphorous insecticides.

Prostate problems: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may make the symptoms of prostate problems worse. If you have a history of prostate problems, discuss with your doctor how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Seizures: The frequency of seizures may increase if you have a seizure disorder and are taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine). If you have a history of Epilepsy or medical conditions that increase your risk of seizures, discuss with your doctor how Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Stopping the medication: If Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) is stopped suddenly, you may experience withdrawal symptoms similar to the unwanted movements described in the section "Tardive Dyskinesia." If you have been taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) for a while, it should be stopped gradually as directed by your doctor.

Tardive Dyskinesia (TD): Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), like some other antipsychotic medications may cause tardive dyskinesia (TD) to develop. TD is a potentially irreversible syndrome of involuntary, repetitive movements of the face and tongue muscles. Although TD appears most commonly in seniors, especially women, it is impossible to predict who will develop TD. The risk of developing TD increases with higher doses and long-term treatment. If you experience muscle twitching or abnormal movements of the face or tongue, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Pregnancy: The safe use of Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) during pregnancy has not been established. Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), contact your doctor immediately.

Babies born to mothers who take Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) during the last 3 months of pregnancy may experience withdrawal symptoms including agitation, trouble feeding and poor muscle tone.

Breast-feeding: Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: Children with an illness involving fever or dehydration seem to be much more susceptible than adults to reactions involving the muscles. In these cases, Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) should be used under close supervision and at low doses.

Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine) should not be given to children under 2 years of age or weighing less than 9 kg, unless it is considered potentially lifesaving.

Seniors: Those over 55 years of age may be more likely to experience adverse effects from Prochlorazine (Prochlorperazine). Seniors with dementia-related psychosis who are treated with antipsychotics are at an increased risk of death.
