From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cinnarizine (brand name Stugeron) is an antihistamine that treats travel sickness, vertigo, tinnitus and Ménière's disease. It works by blocking the effects of histamine in the brain to reduce the symptoms of travel sickness (motion sickness). It also helps to improve blood flow in the inner ear. This is how it reduces the dizziness and sickness from vertigo, tinnitus and Ménière's. It also comes mixed with dimenhydrinate to treat vertigo.[1]

Cinnarizine is known as a drowsy (sedating) antihistamine, so it is more likely to make people feel sleepy than other antihistamines.[1] Cinnarizine comes as tablets.[1]
