What should I know about prochlorperazine before using it?

If prochlorperazine is prescribed for you or someone in your family, make sure your doctor has a complete medical history. Before starting prochloperazine, tell your doctor if you have ever had seizures, glaucoma, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, liver problems, or brain damage. Your doctor also needs to know if you are allergic to any medications, if you are taking other drugs (prescription or over-the-counter), including any herbs, supplements, or vitamins, or if you are pregnant or nursing. Children and the elderly may be more sensitive to this medication. It should not be given to children younger than two years of age.
