was overdosed in hospital

What are signs of an allergic reaction to compazine and being overdosed? ## I was in the hospital about a year ago.. and I was given compazine. I will NEVER allow a doctor to give that s*** to me again. When asked now if Im allergic to anything, I ALWAYS say Compazine. After getting a dose of it, I didnt know what to do with myself. I wanted to sit up, and I wanted to lay down. I wanted to move, I felt like I was sliding off the bed. Taking that med, made me feel like I was crawling out of my own skin. I feel so bad for you if you had a reacton to it. I got sooo bad with the whole thing that they tried givin me benadrill (sorry for spelling) to help take the side effects away, but it didnt help. If there is anything else I can help you with, or if you have anymore question. Please feel ...
