Stugeron (Cinnarizine)

Drug:Stugeron Regular
Dosage:25 mg
Stugeron Forte
75 mg


Stugeron tablets contain the active ingredient Cinnarizine, which is an antihistamine. Cinnarizine is used to control travel sickness and the symptoms of inner ear disorders such as Meniere’s disease. Vomiting is controlled by an area of the brain called the vomiting centre. The vomiting center is responsible for causing feelings of sickness (nausea) and for the vomiting reflex. It works by blocking histamine and muscarinic receptors in the vomiting centre in the brain. This prevents the vomiting centre from receiving nerve messages from the vestibular apparatus which prevents disturbances in the middle ear from activating the vomiting centre and causing nausea, vertigo and vomiting.
