Promethazine is a phenothiazine derivative which blocks postsynaptic mesolimbic dopaminergic receptors in the brain. It exhibits strong α-adrenergic blocking effect and depresses the release of hypothalamic and hypophyseal hormones. It competes with histamine for the H1-receptor; muscarinic blocking effect may be responsible for antiemetic activity. It also reduces stimuli to the brainstem reticular system.
Promethazine Hydrochloride may cause drowsiness. If affected, patients should be advised not to drive or operate machinery. Alcohol and certain other CNS depressants can potentiate the sedative effects of this antihistamine and patient should be warned of these effects.
