Stugeron is a travel sickness tablet containing the active ingredient cinnarizine. Cinnarizine is an antihistamine that reduces symptoms of travel sickness, regardless of the cause.

Stugeron tablets can treat the symptoms of vomiting, nausea, dizziness, vertigo, and ringing in the ear (tinnitus) that is associated with middle ear disorders.

Stugeron tablets contain 15 mg of the active ingredient cinnarizine. This is an antihistamine that stops nerve signals from triggering the vomiting centre in the brain. These signals are sent by the vestibular apparatus at the inner ear, and preventing them from reaching the brain suppresses symptoms of travel sickness.

The vestibular apparatus is sending the brain information on the body's position. When the head is moving a lot, such as when travelling by car or plane, these signals can trigger the vomiting centre in the brain. This causes symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, vertigo, or vomiting.

The way cinnarazine works is by blocking histamine receptors in the vomiting centre of the brain. This means that any nerve signals sent to the brain by the vestibular apparatus will not activate the vomiting centre.

You can chew or swallow Stugeron tablets.

Stugeron can cause stomach upsets. Taking the tablets with or after food may reduce this effect.

Don't take more than the recommended dose of Stugeron tablets.

Taking Stugeron alongside other medicines that can cause drowsiness may cause an increased risk of drowsiness. Take care if you are using other medicines that cause drowsiness, such as:

Antipsychotics (such as chlorpromazine or haloperidol)

Benzodiazepines (such as diazepam or temazepam)

Sedating antihistamines (such as chlorphenamine, promethazine, or hydroxyzine)

Sleeping tablets

Opioid painkillers (such as morphine, codeine, tramadol, or fetanyl)

Tricyclic antidepressants (such as amitriptyline)

Cinnarizine may reduce the effects of histamines (which can be used to treat leukaemia) and betahistines (which can be used to treat Meniere's disease).
