|Treating motion sickness
Strugeron contains Cinnarizine and is used for preventing and treating motion sickness. It is also used for relieving nausea, vomiting, attacks of dizziness or spinning sensations (vertigo) and sensations of ringing or other noise in the ears (tinnitus) associated with Meniere's disease and other middle ear disorders.
Dosage and administration
Strictly use Stugeron (Cinnarizine) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or adjust your dosage yourself. Correct dosage can vary depending on the patient, their medical history, and the exact condition being treated.
- Disturbances of the gut such as diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain
- Dry mouth
- Weight gain (rarely with long-term use)
- Abnormal movements of the hands, legs, face, neck and tongue, eg tremor, twitching, rigidity (rarely with long-term use, mostly in elderly people - stop taking this medicine and consult your physician if this occurs)

Stugeron (Cinnarizine) may cause drowsiness. If affected do not drive or operate machinery. Alcohol should be avoided.
If you find this medicine upsets your stomach, taking it with or after food may help.
If you are due to have any skin prick tests to diagnose allergies you should stop taking this medicine at least 48 hours before the tests. This is because antihistamines can prevent or lessen the skin reactions that indicate an allergy, and so can make the test results unreliable.
