NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

Clinical Trials Related to Promethazine, Phenylephrine and Codeine (Promethazine / Phenylephrine / Codeine)

Improving Safety of Antivenom in People Bitten by Snakes [Completed]
A study to increase the safety of polyvalent antivenom involving 1000 patients in three centres: low dose adrenaline, promethazine, & hydrocortisone (alone and in combination) to prevent acute adverse reactions to antivenom in people bitten by snakes: randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Four Interventions in the Management of Psychomotor Agitation, Safety and Efficacy Evaluation [Completed]

Prevention of Narcotic-Induced Nausea [Terminated]
We are doing this study to find out if extra medicine is needed to avoid the chance of nausea sometimes linked to narcotic pain medicine (for example, morphine, dilaudid, fentanyl). Some doctors always give medicine to prevent the possible side effect of nausea, while others do not. We are looking to see if this extra medicine is helpful in preventing nausea. The goal is to screen all patients with pain and enroll enough subjects to reach our goal of 164 evaluable study participants.

Effect of Hyoscine and Promethazine on Labor Pain [Completed]
It is always considered to shorten the duration of delivery without compromising the mother and fetus by obstetrics. Hyoscine and Promethazine are used widely in hospital and research is very limited, with conflicting results regarding the efficacy of these two drugs. So the investigators decided to compare of effect of hyoscine N-butyl bromide and Promethazine on length of active phase of the first stage of labor.

Morphine Versus Morphine-promethazine Combination for Acute Low Back Pain Relief in the Adult Emergency Department [Not yet recruiting]
Acute low back pain is a common cause for emergency department visits. Controversy remains regarding the optimal medication for acute low back pain relief. The investigators hypothesized that administration of pharmacological anxiolysis in addition to analgesia will improve pain relief and patient management in the emergency department.
