    I was about to say yes, of course, until I realized you're talking about injecting promethazine syrup, not sterile promethazine solution for injection.

    Think long and hard about this: does injecting syrup sound like a good idea?

    The hospitals have promethazine that they use for injection, but it will ruin your veins. That's why most hospitals use zofran (spelling?) instead of promethazine (phenegran). SWIM had an iv of promethazine once from the hospital and felt pretty bad pain in that vein for the next week afterwards, and the nurse said that's what caused the pain. Just take it orally, it will work just as good if not better. Or you can take it anally, but that's just not for me.

    Weird. Every time SWIM has had a promethazine injection it has been in the bum.

    Some interesting reading here


    Anybody who is considering injecting promethazine should google this below, cause I don't want to link to the US FDA web site. If that's what the risks of sterile promethazine are, then I wouldn't recommend fucking about with non-sterile sources full-stop.
