Travel sickness can be a very debilitating condition, often restricting everyday activities.

Avomine Tablets can also be used in the treatment of vomiting and nausea including travellers diarrhoea treatment.

Promethazine theoclate, is the main ingredient in Avomine and it stops naturally occurring histamine from binding to its receptors in the vomiting centre of the brain. Normally, this part of the brain reacts to nerve signals from the vestibular apparatus in the middle ear.

The vestibular apparatus tells the brain about movements of the head. Constant movement such as when travelling by car or boat can cause too many signals to the vomiting centre, resulting in symptoms of nausea, vertigo, or vomiting. Promethazine theoclate blocks the action of histamine in the vomiting centre thus preventing the nauseas feelings.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Avomine?

    Avomine tablets are used to prevent or relieve nausea and vomiting brought about by motion sickness or various other causes. It can also treat vertigo, a symptom of an inflamed middle ear or Ménière’s disease. The active ingredient is an antihistamine called promethazine teoclate.

  • How does this medicine work?

     Motion sickness and vertigo occur when the brain receives certain nerve signals from the vestibular apparatus. This is the name for a series of organs in the middle ear which compose the body’s sense of balance. Some types of movement can cause this balance to be disrupted. When this happens, nerve signals are sent to the brain which cause involuntary feelings of nausea, dizziness or spinning.

    The active ingredient in Avomine is an antihistamine called promethazine teoclate, which prevents these signals from reaching their receptors in the vomiting centre of the brain.

  • How do I use this medicine?

    If you are using Avomine to treat motion sickness, take a tablet as soon as you begin noticing symptoms. Have another tablet later that evening. If your symptoms persist, you can have a third dose the following night.

    If you are using Avomine to prevent motion sickness, take one tablet one to two hours before your journey. If you will be travelling for a long time, take a tablet the evening before you set off, and continue taking one dose per evening.
