V Gan 25

Generic Name: Promethazine

V Gan -25 is a prescribed medicine which is used to treat nausea and vomiting related to certain conditions mostly after surgery, motion sickness. The active ingredient of this medicine is Promethazine which has been licensed to treat nausea, motion sickness, and various other conditions. It is available by prescription only and comes in tablet, rectal suppository, syrup, and injectable form. By blocking histamine and acetylcholine receptors, the drug causes several different effects in the body and brain.

V Gan -25 is an antihistamine medically known as phenothiazine type. It works by blocking a certain natural substance that your body makes during an allergic reaction. Its other effects (e.g., anti-nausea, calming, pain relief) may work by affecting other natural substances and by acting directly on certain parts of the brain. This medication should not be used in children younger than 2 years. It may also be used before or after surgery, other procedures, or labor and delivery to help you feel calmer, to prevent nausea and vomiting, and to help certain narcotic pain relievers.
