Erm...why would he take an antibiotic (Septrin) for a viral infection?!
Anyway. Phenergan is commonly used to treat nausea (amongst other things), but it's not something I'd really recommend popping every time you feel a bit queasy...it does have side effects (though I've had to take it for motion sickness - yes, even as an adult - and it just makes me drowsy).
As for his stomach complaint - no idea. Did he eat something iffy? It could be any number of things; to be honest I wouldn't worry too much unless he has protracted vomiting or diarrhea, or a fever. Sometimes vomiting is the body's best way of getting rid of something nasty, you know?
