What is Stugeron Forte?
Stugeron Forte works by blocking histamine and other receptors in the brain to prevent disturbances in the middle ear from activating the vomit centre and causing nausea, vertigo or vomiting. The active ingredient cinnarizine is considered an antihistamine used to prevent and treat motion sickness. Some patients may also use the medication to treat tinnitus associated with Meniere’s disease and other middle ear disorders.
How is Stugeron Forte used?
Stugeron Forte is usually taken orally 2 hours prior to travelling or as directed by a doctor. For extended traveling, additional doses may be taken every 8 hours. The tablets may also be cut apart to be taken in smaller portions periodically. The medication should be taken with or just after a meal along with some water to prevent an upset stomach. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patient’s response to the medication.
Stugeron Forte may cause unwanted side effects such as:
- Loss of coordination
- Weight gain
- Increased sweating
- Upset stomach
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
