Answer

Antiemetics and Sedatives

Antiemetics and sedatives are used to treat CH and emesis associated with acute attacks.

Prochlorperazine (Compro)

Prochlorperazine is an antidopaminergic drug that blocks postsynaptic mesolimbic dopamine receptors, has an anticholinergic effect, and can depress the reticular activating system, thereby possibly relieving nausea and vomiting.
