Hi everyone , i was recently given a drug Phenergan 25mg , to take at night ,to help sleep and daytime anxiety! Because according to new Goverment rules they want Gps to try and wean people off Diaxapam , which i take in emergencies only anyway like my hospital app ,dentists and long distance travell , so im not addicted to these and its really the only thing that helps me ! Phenergan does nothing anyone one taken it ?

I use quite a lot , mainly for hay fever and find it definitely has a sedating effect

I was given phenergan to apparently help me sleep, it sent me off the scale with hyper activity, I went to accident and emergency to ask for something to help me sleep, the nurse went mad at me and basically refused to assess or treat me. I had no idea it was phenergan that caused it, until I read that it can have an adverse effect.
