Prochlorperazine 5mg

Prochlorperazine belongs to a group of medicines called phenothiazine tranquillizers, and it can be used to treat, as well as prevent, feelings of nausea and vomiting.


Prochlorperazine, which belongs to the phenothiazine group, is a disease drug used to relieve nausea and vomiting. It is widely used to treat nausea and vomiting associated with migraines and reduce any illness caused by multiple causes.

Prochlorperazine is effective in providing significant symptomatic relief from dizziness and associated vomiting and nausea. It mainly affects by depressing the chemoreceptor trigger zone and blocking D2 dopamine receptors in the brain.

When used to treat acute nausea and vomiting, Prochlorperazine is thought to directly affect the vomiting centre and chemoreceptor trigger zone, both located in the medulla oblongata of the brain. Therefore, Prochlorperazine may be used to treat severe nausea and vomiting and some mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia.

Talk to your doctor or our team of pharmacists before taking any other medications with Prochlorperazine, including those bought over-the-counter, because some of these may not be compatible with Prochlorperazine.

Prochlorperazine can be consumed either as standard tablets that you swallow whole with a drink of water or tablets that dissolve between your upper lip and gum (buccal tablets).

Standard tablets can be consumed with or without food, while Buccal tablets work best if they're taken after meals. This gives them more time to dissolve. Additionally, it's best not to drink alcohol while taking Prochlorperazine as it can increase the chance of side effects, such as feeling sleepy or tired.
