Promethazine Agitation Causes and Reviews


Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease (AD) can be stressful and overwhelming. It's important to take care of yourself. Ask for and accept help.

Talk to the doctor. Find out what treatments might help control symptoms or address behavior problems. Find a support group. Others who have "been there" may be able to help and will understand.

If there are times of day that the person is less confused or more cooperative, take advantage of that in daily routines. Consider using adult day care or respite services. These offer a break with the peace of mind that the patient is being taken care of. Begin to plan for the future. This may include

  • Getting financial and legal documents in order
  • Looking into assisted living or nursing homes
  • Finding out what your health insurance and Medicare will cover

Promethazine Agitation Reviews

Wed, 04 Apr 2012

I got a Promethazine shot 4-5 weeks ago in my hip due to nausea and vomiting from a stomach virus. I now have a small lump-knot where I got the shot at and it is really sore still. I was told to massage it and put heat on it to make it go away but it doesn't help. Does this suppose to happen?
