Storage Methods

Prochlorperazine tablets and suppositories should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in an airtight container, and the suppositories should be kept in their original packaging until just before use.
 
Keep prochlorperazine and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

Although prochlorperazine is often taken only when needed (such as for nausea or vomiting), some people take it regularly. If you do not take your prochlorperazine as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 

Who Makes It?

Prochlorperazine was originally manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. Although brand-name Compazine is no longer being made, generic prochlorperazine products are still available. Generic prochlorperazine is made by several different companies.
