Does hyoscyamine and promethazine work the same?

No, both medicines work differently.

Hyoscyamine is an anticholinergic agent. It works by decreasing the motion of muscles in the stomach, intestines, and bladder. It also decreases the production of stomach acid.

Promethazine is in a group of drugs called phenothiazines. It works by changing the actions of chemicals in your brain. Promethazine also acts as an antihistamine. It blocks the effects of the naturally occurring chemical histamine in your body.

Sometimes they both can be used to treat similar symptoms.
