Possible Side Effects
General Information
Common Drug Side Effects Like many medicines, Prochlorperazine may occasionally cause side-effects in some patients, particularly when you first start taking it. These may include: Effects on the blood: Rarely your medicine may cause a potentially life-threatening reduction in certain blood cells, which can present as sore throat, mouth ulcers and a tendency to infection or bleeding or bruising easily. If you notice any of these effects you should consult your doctor immediately who might want to give you a blood test. Effects on the endocrine system: An increase in prolactin levels which may cause milk production, development of breasts in males, irregular or loss of menstrual periods in women and reduced sexual potency in men have been reported. Effects on the central nervous system: Agitation and difficulty sleeping. Movement disorders such as tremor, rigidity, involuntary movements especially of the face, mouth and tongue may occur after weeks or months of treatment. It is common just for tremor to occur. Abnormal and repetitive movements (eg grimacing, tongue protrusion, lip smacking and pursing, rapid movements of the arms and legs) may occur usually but not always after prolonged or high doses. Difficulty in controlling movements and jerky movements (which is usually temporary and more common in children and young adults, and usually occurs within 4 days of treatment or after dose increases). When you first start taking prochlorperazine a large dose may cause restlessness. This medicine may cause “Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome”. Symptoms include high temperature, drowsiness, rigid muscles, rapid breathing, restlessness and uncontrolled movements. Effects on the eye: Although never reported for prochlorperazine, difficulty in focussing or loss of sight has been experienced in some patients who have taken similar medicines for several years. These effects could occur with prochlorperazine. Effects on the heart: Irregular heartbeats, heart block or fast racing heart have been reported. These effects are more likely if you already suffer from heart problems, are elderly, have low levels of potassium in the blood or are taking medicines known as tricyclic antidepressants. Low blood pressure, which may cause dizziness and feeling faint especially when you stand up, commonly occurs. Although changes in the electrical activity of the heart may occur, these are usually harmless and would be detected by a test called an ECG. Effects on the lungs, chest and airway: A blocked nose is a minor side effect. Difficulty breathing is possible in susceptible patients. Effects on the stomach and intestines: A dry mouth is a minor side effect. Effects on the liver: Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and/or whites of the eyes) occurs in a very small number of patients and is usually temporary in nature. If you develop a sudden fever (high temperature) 1-3 weeks after starting the , followed by jaundice and possibly a rash, you should contact your GP immediately. Effects on the skin and tissues: Do not handle the more than you need to as you may develop sore, red or blistered skin. Although never reported for prochlorperazine, greyish-mauve colouration of exposed skin has been experienced in some patients, especially women, who have taken similar medicines for several years. Patients taking high doses may develop sensitivity to sunlight. If this occurs you should avoid sun lamps and direct sunlight. Your doctor may advise you to use a sunscreen. Skin rashes have also been reported. If you get these or any other unusual effects, tell your doctor or pharmacist immediately and seek advice.
