    Phenergan has 3 uses:

    1. To control allergy problems and sudden allergic reactions
    2. To help relieve nausea and car sickness
    3. As a sedative (not that I would recommend it for this, but some people do use it for this reason)

    I wouldn't recommend it for that either, sometimes it can have the opposite effect and the kids end up bouncing off the walls for hours.

    I used it as an antihistamine for my kids when they had eczema, but to be honest, it didn't work that well.

    • Phenergan is an antihistamine. It blocks the effects of the naturally occurring chemical histamine in your body.

    • Phenergan is used to treat allergy symptoms such as itching, runny nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, hives, and itchy skin rashes.

    • Phenergan also prevents motion sickness, and treats nausea and vomiting or pain after surgery. It is also used as a sedative or sleep aid.

    • Phenergan may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

    Yep, I have a bottle with me most of the time, DS2 is allergic to bees and I have to give it to him if he gets stung.

    A girl I know was told by her doc to give some to her son who was having trouble sleeping. WHen he said some, he meant for one or two nights. She did it for WEEKS(like 3 or 4 bottles worth). Eep!

    I was a phenergan baby/child...I didn't sleep a full night until I went to primary school and the doctor put me on phenergan for a little while to get me to sleep, as soon as I was off it though I was back to waking at midnight, ready for the day...my poor mother!!

    **This was the 70's though...I don't think that this would be a course of action any doctor would take nowadays.
    Didn't do me any harm though...except for this tick #*%!!

    We use it when our son has anallergic reaction as it helps stop it and relieves the itch/headache/watery eyes/ etc etc

    Re: the sleep thing, a friend of mine just had her toddler do a sleep apnea test and found she wakes 60 times an hour (a very severe case of sleep apnea) which is why she has never slept for longer then 30 mins on her own....poor bub!

    I have been told the same as Belinda. For children under 2 it is never recommended for use without medical advice because of the SIDS link.

    Another product that can be used from 6 months on is Polarmine. We have used that one and it is good.
