User :   Hi, may I answer your health queries
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   How can I help You
User :   Hi, I brought my wife into the ER earlier today and she was given compazine and dilaudid.
User :   Compazine side effects are nasty and she was subsequently given benadryl
User :   she slept it off and woke up a little while ago feeling the effects still.
User :   I suggested she take tyelenol pm. That won't pose a dangerous interaction would it?
User :   oh, and she is also on propanolol, which she just took for her evening dose
Doctor :   let me read what You have written
Doctor :   Why wad she taken to er?
User :   oh... sorry. Migraine
Doctor :   pK
Doctor :   OK
User :   they did ease her symptoms. the compazine posed side effects that made her feel jittery, very restless legs like symptoms in her whole body. Like "she was crawling out of her skin". she was given benadryl x2 and it helped. Until now.
Doctor :   Ok what is she feeling now
User :   the same side effects from the compazine.
Doctor :   does she have any fever?
User :   no fever
Doctor :   I think it is betterThat You report this to One of the emergency room physicians and get your wife physically examined by one of them
User :   ok thx
Doctor :   We usualy do not prescribe drugs without physicaly examining the patient
Doctor :   I would suggest that You do not administer any medications to Your wife since these drugs have interactions and need to be prescribed by physician only after physical examination
User :   what interactions are contra indicated, please?
Doctor :   Why is your woife taking propanolol?
User :   Migraines and blood pressure
Doctor :   I would suggest that Your wife takes drugs only after they are prescribed by a physician
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Is there anything I can help You with?
User :   no.
User :   thank you
Doctor :   Hope You have understood
User :   yes
Doctor :   Do clarify with the emergency room physicians before administring any drug as they are in a position to moniter Your wife which we cannot do from here
