Phenergan Elixir 100ml

Phenergan Elixir contains a medicine called promethazine hydrochloride. This belongs to a group of medicines called antihistamines. It works by blocking a natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction. It also works directly on the brain to help you feel more relaxed.

      Each 5 ml of oral solution contains 5 mg Promethazine hydrochloride.

      • After use, wipe the neck of the bottle with a clean damp cloth. This will remove any liquid that is left, before putting the cap back on

      Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines. This includes medicines you can buy without prescription, including herbal medicines. This is because Phenergan Elixir can affect the way some medicines work. Also some medicines can affect the way Phenergan Elixir works.

      • Hydrogenated glucose syrup (maltitol liquid). This is a type of carbohydrate which the body will convert into small amounts of sugar. The maximum 25ml single dose of Phenergan Elixir is equivalent to approximately 5 grams of sugar, or one teaspoon of sugar/ sugar lump. Taking this amount of Phenergan Elixir is unlikely to affect the control of your diabetes or require you to increase your diabetes medication. If you have been told by your doctor that you cannot tolerate or digest some sugars (have an intolerance to some sugars), talk to your doctor before taking this medicine. Hydrogenated glucose syrup may have a mild laxative effect. The calorific value of hydrogenated glucose syrup is 2.3kcal/g. A 5ml dose (one teaspoon) contains approximately 10kcal.
      • Sodium sulphite and sodium metabisulphite. These may rarely cause severe allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions and difficulty breathing, wheezing and tightness in the chest (bronchospasm)
      • Sodium. It contains 37mg sodium per dose (5ml). Take this into account if you are on a controlled sodium diet

      Keep all medicines out the sight and reach of children.
