The tablets and suppositories should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Compazine tablets should be stored in an airtight container, and Compazine suppositories should be kept in their original packaging until just before use.
Keep Compazine and all other medications out of the reach of children.
Although Compazine is often taken only when needed (such as for nausea or vomiting), some people take it regularly. If you do not take your dose 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.
