Nausea causes a sick feeling in the stomach and can affect anyone, though people diagnosed with migraines are often more susceptible. Cyclizine tablets treat those who experience nausea due to problems with the middle or inner ear.

The ear’s vestibular area consists of chambers, fluid and nerves that transmit information to the brain and help it form a picture of the body’s movement and balance. These messages usually correspond with those delivered by the eyes and muscles. However, if these messages contradict each other, the brain can become confused which prompts the vomiting centre to signal feelings of nausea. The reaction can be caused by car, plane or boat travel or by repeated motion.  

If motion causes your nausea, try these techniques: keep still, sit in fresh air, follow the horizon, listen to music and try to relax. Some find that ginger-based products are also effective at reducing nausea. Unfortunately, these practices may not work for everyone. In such cases, medication may be required.

Cyclizine antihistamine tablets can combat symptoms of nausea and are available through our online pharmacy.

Cyclizine works to block receptors in the brain’s vomiting centre and prevents them from receiving signals from the vestibular area. This stops the vomiting centre from reacting and prevents the feeling of nausea. If treatment with Cyclizine does not improve your condition, you should consult your doctor.

Take one tablet up to 3 times a day when necessary.

Do not take more than one tablet at a time or more than 3 in 24 hours.

  • How does Cyclizine work?

    Cyclizine helps to block nausea signals reaching the brain.

    The vomiting centre and the CRT (chemoreceptor trigger zone) are responsible for nausea and vomiting. Cyclizine blocks messages from other parts of the body, such as the inner ear, reaching these areas in the brain and prevents them from being activated.

    One tablet can be taken up to 3 times a day as required. Cyclizine can be taken with or after food.

    Cyclizine can be taken one to two hours before travelling if used for motion sickness. It can also be taken before emergency contraception (the 'morning-after pill') if it makes you feel sick.

  • Is it safe to use Cyclizine continuously?

    Cyclizine can be taken on a when required basis and it is not necessary for it to be taken continuously for it to have an effect. Its effects will not diminish over time if taken continuously.
