INTRODUCTION

PHENERGAN contains Promethazine which belongs to the group of medicines called Antihistamines. It is used as a sedative in both adults and in children. It also helps you stay relaxed before an operation. It can also be used to treat allergic reactions such as hay fever or skin rashes.

Promethazine is an antihistamine with sedative properties. It acts by blocking the release of certain chemicals (histamines) in the body that causes allergic reactions. It can also directly act on the brain and help you feel relaxed and calm.
