Stugeron 15 provides effective relief for travel and motion sickness. The active ingredient in Stugeron is cinnarizine. Vomiting is caused by an area in the brain called the vomiting centre and by the continual movement of the head when travelling this generates feedback to the vomiting centre. When travel sickness and motion sickness occurs you can encounter sensations such as nausea, dizziness or spinning sensations (sometimes known as Vertigo) and on this occasion motion sickness remedies such as Stugeron are recommended.
Like all medicines, Stugeron tablets can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
