Dear lord no, its an antihistamine.

It's not an antihistamine. It keeps you from vomiting.

It is both. It is an antihistamine used to treat nausea. I know that sounds odd, but it is just that.

Yes. Promethazine is a Schedule V controlled substance under the Federal Controlled Substance Act. It is often combined in a syrup with codeine, and if so, then the combination is a Schedule II controlled substance. (And by the way, it is BOTH an antihistamine AND an antiemetic).

Actually phenergan alone is not a controlled substance. When combined with codeine it is a Schedule V controlled substance.
