Topic: Effects of compazine
I was reading about something and a bell went off in my head. The other day my daughter, Lauren was saying she felt shaky and in a daze. I kept trying to think of why she might feel like that. I think I figured it out. She takes compazine after her chemo for a few days to keep her from feeling sick. Once she starts to feel better she takes them only as needed, which is not that often. I looked up compazine on the internet and it says you should never take it and then just stop. You need to gradually stop. So I guess when she is feeling better, she should take one every eight hours and then every 12 hours. I would like your opinions on this. I don't want her to take it if she doesn't need it. I think she was in withdrawal, but it could have been the effects of the chemo. Geez, you need to be a detective.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
