In brief: Antiemetic

Used safely for yrs to alleviate nausea ; vomiting oral im ; suppository routes usually only a few doses--shouldn't cause any lasting harm.

In brief: No permanent changes

Yes it is true that Compazine (prochlorperazine) is an anti-psychotic but it is also an anti-emetic drug and can be used to treat nausea and vomiting.
The half-life is 3-5 hours and is metabolized by the liver. He should be fine.
