Does promethazine syrup interact with other drugs?

Some medications might react poorly with promethazine syrup and should be avoided or used with caution in combination with it. Problem medicines may include lithium, charcoal, muscle relaxers, painkillers, MAO inhibitors, ACE inhibitors, epinephrine (adrenaline), blood thinners; drugs that make you sleepy (sleeping pills, sedatives, etc.); medicines that treat high blood pressure, Parkinson's disease, depression, anxiety, ulcers, motion sickness, irritable bowel disease, urinary disorders, restless leg syndrome, pituitary gland tumors, spasms, heartburn or mental illness; or with other medications that treat cold and allergy symptoms.

You should tell your doctor about all medicines, supplements, vitamins and herbal remedies that you take before starting on promethazine syrup. Also, avoid drinking alcohol while taking promethazine, as it can worsen some of the drug's side effects.
