Phenergan v Benadryl, opposite sides of the planet..
Posted 19 February 2012 - 10:46 PM
In the U.S. the guidelines that I was trained on and have been exposed to call for Benadryl for allergic reactions, and Phenergan (Promethazine) for nausea and vomiting.
Though when in Afg working with Aussies, and here in PNG, the combination is reversed.
Is one pairing superior to the other? Why?

My personal bias is for the use of diphenhydramine. In addition, I grew quite fond of using IV dimenhydrinate for nausea and vomiting when I worked overseas. I believe an oral form exists in the United States called Dramamine.

Personally, I believe if you are giving an H1 blocker, you should be giving an H2 blocker as well.

Edit: Added "one" to differentiate the two warnings.
