What is Cyclizine?
Cyclizine reduces nausea, vomiting and dizziness due for example to motion sickness. The active substance cyclizine causes the vomiting center of the brain to be less stimulated. This means you are less sick and you stop vomiting. You can order Cyclizine online through the pharmacies working together with Dokteronline.com. A prescription is not required for the 50 mg tablets.
What is this medicine used for?
This medicine is used to treat and prevent motion sickness as well as other forms of nausea and vomiting. In case of motion sickness, the vestibular system is disrupted. This causes symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sweating, dizziness and a general sick feeling. Cyclizine reduces these symptoms quickly. The effect begins within half an hour and lasts up until about six hours.
