Arlevert is a drug that contains two active substances – cinnarizine and dimenhydrinate (also known as diphenhydramine) – which belong to the medical class of antihistamines.

What is this medication used for?

Arlevert tablets are prescribed in the event of vertigo symptoms, including dizziness, a spinning sensation and nausea. These symptoms are caused by problems in the balance organ that is located in the inner ear. The action of Arlevert cena blocks the signals sent from the “nausea centre” to the brain, reducing symptoms. Arlevert can also be prescribed for migraines.

How to use Arlevert?

Use Arlevert cena based on to the advice of your doctor or pharmacist at all times. Always read the enclosed leaflet. Arlevert should be taken during or after a meal with water. Arlevert tablets contain either 20 mg or 40 mg of active substances. The doctor will determine which dosage you should use. Doctors also recommend not using Arlevert cena for more than four consecutive weeks. If you still experience vertigo related symptoms after this period, consult your doctor again.

Side effects and interactions

One of the most common side effects of Arlevert is drowsiness. Usually this goes away on its own. If you experience drowsiness, you may have a reduced ability to concentrate and be less alert. It is therefore recommended not to drive a car or operate machinery. Other possible side effects include headaches, upset stomach, diarrhoea and dry mouth. In addition to the side effects mentioned above, there may also be interactions when it is combined with other medications. You should therefore always mention the use of other medications to your doctor, especially antidepressants, medications for high blood pressure and antiarrhythmic drugs (used to treat cardiac arrhythmias). If you need to use another medication in addition to Arlevert cena, ask for advice from your doctor or pharmacist. In the event of unexpected and serious side effects, stop using Arlevert immediately and consult your doctor.
