Promethazine helps in more ways than one. It helps with swelling in the bronchi tubes that may cause breathing problems, and some cases of nausea.

Promethazine is an anti-inflammatory, so itll help with anything of that nature, which is why its put in prescription strength cough syrup. But its also stops people from being nauseous from things like motion sickness and opioids, which is another reason its in prescription strength cough syrup; cause something like 80% of people will get sick feeling from codeine.
