Important Instructions for Compazine

General Information on Dosing With Compazine

Some considerations for people taking Compazine include:
 
  • Compazine comes in tablet and rectal suppository forms. It is also available in an injectable form.
     
  • Compazine suppositories can be especially useful for people with very severe nausea and vomiting who have difficulty swallowing (or "keeping down") a tablet.
     
  • Do not take Compazine rectal suppositories by mouth. Be sure to remove the foil or plastic packaging before inserting rectally.
     
  • It does not matter if you take Compazine tablets with or without food.
     
  • If you take Compazine on a daily basis, you should take it at the same times each day to maintain even levels of the drug in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Compazine will not work if you stop using it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Compazine dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist. If you take Compazine on a regular basis, do not stop taking it without first discussing it with your healthcare provider (see Compazine Withdrawal).
