Before evaluating whether u can take combination of drugs, may i know the reason why you wanna take these medicines, what's causing nausea..? as both of those drugs are preferred in certain conditions like..
Cyclizine is usually used to treat or prevent nausea, vomiting, or dizziness caused by motion sickness.
Prochlorperazine is an antipsychotic. used in controlling severe nausea and vomiting and treating schizophrenia.
since you have also tried metaclopramide. I have know why exactly u are taking these drugs.

Brief Answer:
Better to continue with domperidone

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,
I appreciate your follow up..
As mentioned in my previous reply, both cyclizine and prochlorperazine are indicated in few very specific conditions, its better to go with metaclopramide until your doctor figures out the precise reason.
I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
