What should I know about Phenergan VC before taking it?

Before you take Phenergan VC, you should understand that the drug might alter your state of mind, so it is not a good idea to do all the things you normally do. For instance, because the drug could make you tired or dizzy, you want to use extreme caution if you drive or engage in other potentially dangerous activities when taking the drug. You should also understand that alcohol can increase these effects. In addition, before you take Phenergan VC, know what conditions and medications might interact with the drug. For instance, if you have seizures, sleep apnea, thyroid issues, glaucoma, ulcers, bladder issues, heart disease and like conditions, kidney or liver problems, diabetes, thyroid issues, or enlarged prostate, you might not be able to take Phenergan VC. In addition, you should know that tests have not been done to determine whether Phenergan VC can affect an unborn or nursing baby. Finally, like with every medication, there is the chance of allergic reaction with Phenrgan VC, so make sure you are on the look out for signs of allergy, including swelling, hives, rash, difficulty breathing, and tightness in the chest.
