We are Certified



Meclizine, an antihistamine, is indicated for the prevention and management of nausea, vomiting, and dizziness that arise from motion sickness. This medication may also be employed to mitigate vertigo and disequilibrium stemming from inner ear disorders. Optimal therapeutic outcomes are achieved with pre-emptive administration, prior to the onset of symptoms.

Uses and Dosage

Meclizine is available in three different formulations: regular tablets, chewable tablets, and capsules.

Chewable tablets may be either chewed or swallowed whole, as per individual preference.

To alleviate symptoms of motion sickness, meclizine should be ingested approximately an hour before embarking on the journey. If required, doses can be repeated every 24 hours.

In case of dizziness resulting from an ear disorder, adhere to the healthcare provider’s instructions.

Follow the directions provided on the prescription label, seeking clarification from the doctor or pharmacist for any ambiguity. Meclizine must be taken exactly as prescribed, without altering the dosage or frequency, either by increasing or decreasing it.

  • sleepiness
  • dry mouth
