Vistaril question

Post  sconesail on Thu 08 May 2014, 7:14 am

Hi All,

I had an appointment with my pain dr on Monday- it went very well. Basically, I am staying on the Nucynta 100mg ER with Nucynta 75 mg for breakthrough. He did say that he did not want me to use Phenergan with the nucynta due to a possible interaction. (He did say that the injections were ok in an absolute emergency.) My neuro does give oral Phenergan and Zofran to deal with nausea from migraines.

When I was at patient at Diamond and at MHNI, they gave me visteril for the nausea. It worked fairly well. I have also gotten it at the ER. This morning, I had a pretty bad episode of nausea and was also out of Zofran. Then I remembered that Dora (yes, Dora my service dog) had been prescribed Visteril for something a few months ago. I was kind of desperate so I tried taking the visteril and it worked really well. (Normally, I would not take my dog's medication.) Still it worked really well. I will probably ask my neurologist about it tomorrow.

Has anyone else used Visteril and how well does it work for you?

Visteril

I looked up Visteril and it isn't an anti nausea medication, but I am glad it works that way for you. The literature said it is used for Psychoneurosis, anxiety and as a sedative post op.

I know there are many medications that are used "off label" for different needs, so this doesn't surprise me Smile

It's true that Phenergan is contraindicated w/ Nucynta, but Zofran is not. Does Zofran do the trick?

Zofran and Promethazine work with Nucynta for me.

Hi All,

Thanks for the advice and replies.

Yes, Zofran does help the nausea. If I get really sick- I use a combination of a phenergan injection and Zofran. However, I do have oral phenergan, which I take for occasional migraine nausea. My pain dr just didn't want me on too much phenergan. Yes, Visteril is a sedative, but Diamond used to give it for nausea. Anyway, my neuro called some in and it does help. So that is good
