How does Promethazine work?

ravi udawat MBBS, General Physician

Promethazine works by arresting the free histamines. Free histamines are found in the bloodstream due to allergic reactions, and hence this drug helps in relieving allergic symptoms such as coughing and sneezing. Additionally, it also eases the body and helps in inducing sleep by relaxing the brain. This helps the person to take complete rest and recover faster.
