Active Ingredient: Cinnarizine 15mg.
It is an antihistamine medicine that works in the brain. It prevents an area of the brain called the vomiting centre from receiving nerve messages sent from the vestibular (balance) apparatus in the inner ear and so helps in the prevention and treatment of travel sickness. The nausea and sickness occur when the brain is confused by conflicting messages from the ear and from what you can see and what your muscles are feeling from the movement of travel.
2 tablets 2 hours before travelling and 1 tablet every 8 hours during journey.
Children 5-12 years:
1 tablet 2 hours before travelling and half a tablet every 8 hours during journey.
