Treating motion sickness with Phenergan
Promethazine also eases nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness caused by air, sea train or car travel. Motion sickness is caused by conflicting information being received by the brain from the eyes and the inner ear’s vestibular system. The ear’s messages suggest motion, while the eye’s messages suggest that the body is still. The conflicting information stimulates the brain to produce the vomiting reflex. Promethazine in Phenergan 10mg & 25mg tablets binds to histamine receptors in the vestibular apparatus and to histamine receptors in the brain. This blocks the transmission of nerve impulses from the inner ear to the brain, preventing the vomiting reflex. Phenergan tablets also reduce nausea and vomiting due to other conditions including irradiation sickness, postoperative vomiting, and drug-induced nausea.
Phenergan for sedation
Promethazine in Phenergan tablets is an H1-receptor antagonist and binds to histamine receptors in various parts of the including the brain. Blocking these brain histamine receptors is responsible for causing sedation.

Whether having problems sleeping or with travel sickness, Phenergan Elixir can provide relief. It can also act as a sedative or relaxant. This is a multi-purpose medicine that will undoubtedly come in useful.
The active ingredient in Phenergan Elixir is promethazine. This is a sedating antihistamine, meaning it stops histamine in the body from performing functions. Histamine is produced in the body and causes effects such as itching skin, nasal congestion or inflammation of airways in response to the presence of allergens. By blocking histamine from acting, these symptoms of an allergic reaction are suppressed.
Histamine can cause problematic reactions such as anaphylaxis, or more localised ones such as hay fever. Promethazine can be used to treat the symptoms of both.
Promethazine also reduces histamine activity in the vomiting centre of the brain. This area of the brain is in charge of the vomiting reflex and feelings of sickness. One trigger for vomiting that the vomiting centre is activated by is a nerve signal from the vestibular apparatus in the middle ear. When head movements, such as those experienced when travelling by car or boat, are detected in the vestibular apparatus, it can send signals to the vomiting centre that result in motion sickness. The symptoms of this include dizziness, vertigo, nausea, and vomiting. Promethazine blocks the histamine receptors in the vomiting centre, meaning such signals from the vestibular apparatus will not trigger these symptoms.
Promethazine is a sedating antihistamine, meaning it also causes drowsiness. This sedating effect is used before minor surgeries. It can also be useful to provide relief for people suffering from sleeping difficulties such as insomnia.
Phenergan Elixir is an orange flavoured and sugar free sedating antihistamine, providing relief from hay fever or rashes, and also aiding those experiencing sleeping difficulties.
