Phenergan is a powerful anti-nausea or anti-emetic (keep you from vomiting). Am I understanding correctly, you had an allergic reaction and phenergan was prescribed?

Phenergan is prescribed as an anti-emetic (anti-nausea) and it's in the first-generation antihistamine phenothiazine family and related to hydroxyzine. Although it's most commonly prescribed for nausea, it also can be used as a sedative, antihistamine (for allergies), motion sickness, and anxiety. Albuterol is an inhaled short-acting β2-adrenergic receptor agonist used for the relief of bronchospasm in conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It can also be used for allergic asthma (or what my doctor has called "seasonal asthma", though it's the same thing, because it's due to seasonal allergies). If you're asking if you can use Phenergan for an allergic reaction to albuterol, then yes, it should have some effect on the reaction if you take it, as it's an antihistamine.
