Promethazine theoclate, is the main ingredient in Avomine and it stops naturally occurring histamine from binding to its receptors in the vomiting centre of the brain. Normally, this part of the brain reacts to nerve signals from the vestibular apparatus in the middle ear.

The vestibular apparatus tells the brain about movements of the head. Constant movement such as when travelling by car or boat can cause too many signals to the vomiting centre, resulting in symptoms of nausea, vertigo, or vomiting. Promethazine theoclate blocks the action of histamine in the vomiting centre thus preventing the nauseas feelings.
