Promethazine alternatives - successes?

Dana Miller's picture


Hi all,
I know many of us are still struggling with how to eliminate injectable promethazine (or at least reduce utilization).
Have any of you had success with offering alternatives via an alternative alert for a provider? If so which meds/doses have been well received?

Ondansetron IV/PO, promethazine PO, prochlorperazine IV/IM? others?

If you have an alternative alert do you allow the provider to continue with original order with documentation of a reason (central line, intolerance to other agents, etc?)
