What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Phenergan (promethazine) is an antihistamine that relieves nasal stuffiness and inflammation, and red, inflamed eyes caused by hay fever and other allergies. It is also used to treat itching, swelling, and redness from hives and other rashes; allergic reactions to blood transfusions; and, with other medications, anaphylactic shock (severe allergic reaction).
Generic Phenergan also marketed as: Avomine, Promethazine, Receptozine, Tanidil.
*Phenergan® is manufactured by Wyeth.
