Stugeron is a drug used to treat the symptoms of balance or movement problems, such as feeling dizzy or lightheaded, feeling sick or being sick.

Stugeron contains cinnarizine which belongs to a group of medicines called antiemetics. This substance blocks the nausea and prevents you from feeling sick. 

While travelling can be exciting, people who suffer from motion sickness can struggle with daily life. Whether they are affected on planes, cars, trains, buses or boats, it all falls under the umbrella of motion sickness and it disrupts travelling rather a lot.

Taking Stugeron ensures you can travel without worries of feeling unwell.

Always follow the guidance given in the enclosed patient information leaflet and be sure to read it before commencing use of the medicine.

Take Stugeron by sucking, chewing or swallowing the tablets whole with a drink of water, ideally straight after a meal.

The recommended dose of Stugeron varies based on what you are using it for. For travel sickness, adults should take 2 tablets 2 hours before travelling and then 1 tablet every 8 hours during the journey (as needed). Children should take 1 tablet 2 hours before travelling and then ½ a tablet every 8 hours during the journey (as needed).

If you are taking Stugeron for balance problems then it’s 2 tablets 3 times a day for adults, or 1 tablet 3 times a day for children.

If you take more Stugeron than you should then you should consult a doctor. If you forget to take your Stugeron tablet then make sure that you leave at least 8 hours since the last tablet before taking the missed one. Do not double up on a dose to make up for a forgotten one.

Before taking this medication, you should always first check that it is suitable for you and any of your associated medical conditions. Do not take Stugeron if:

  • You are allergic to cinnarizine or any of the other ingredients of this medicine 
  • Your child is under 5 years old 

Take special caution and talk to a doctor before taking Stugeron if any of the following apply:

  • You have Parkinson’s disease
  • You suffer from liver or kidney problems
  • You have a blood problem called ‘porphyria’ 

Because of the way that medications interact with each other, you should talk to a doctor before taking Stugeron if you are already taking medications for any of the following problems:

  • Anxiety  
  • Difficulty sleeping  
  • Pain  
  • Depression.

Do not take Stugeron if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should also avoid alcohol while taking Stugeron, as the drug can add to the alcohol’s effects.

  • Drowsiness
  • Feeling sick (nausea)  
  • Indigestion  
  • Weight gain 

You should cease using Stugeron immediately and contact your doctor if you experience any serious side effects or if you notice signs of an allergic reaction.
