What is Stugeron?

Stugeron contains an antihistamine called cinnarizine. Cinnarizine is a drowsy (sedating) antihistamine which is used for travel sickness (motion sickness) and other inner ear problems, such as vertigo, tinnitus and Meniere's disease.

Travel sickness is a condition in which the brain receives conflicting messages from the part of the ear responsible for balance, and the eyes.

There are two ways the messages conflict:

Motion is felt but not seen - this can occur in aeroplanes and cruise ships. If you are seated away from a window, or cannot see the horizon, your inner ear senses motion but your eyes do not see it.

Motion is seen but not felt - this kind of motion sickness occurs when motion is seen but not felt. It is commonly associated with entertainment, such as films with erratic camera movements, simulation and VR games. Your eyes see motion but your inner ear does not sense it.

In either case, the conflicting messages cause an immune response which induces nausea and vomiting.

If you know you are susceptible to motion sickness, you can take Stugeron 2 hours before travelling to prevent the unpleasant symptoms of motion sickness from developing.

Stugeron is available in tablets which contain 15mg of cinnarizine.

You can buy Stugeron online from Prescription Doctor's UK based, GPhC registered pharmacy following a short online consultation. Our medical team are on-hand to ensure that Stugeron is safe for you.

All items ordered through our online service are sent out via a next-day discreet delivery, ensuring speed and privacy.


How does Stugeron work?

The active ingredient Stugeron, cinnarizine, blocks histamines which trigger a part of the brain called the vomit centre, which is responsible for causing nausea and vomiting attributed to motion sickness.

Inside the inner ear are a group of 3 tubes called semicircular canals. Each of these canals contain tiny sensory hairs which convert their movement to electronic signals. With each tube corresponding to a different orientation - lateral (looking left and right), sagittal (nodding) and frontal (tilting your head side to side) planes - they relay the movement felt to the brain.

The brain combines the signals it receives from the vestibular system (what you feel) with other signals it receives from the visual system (what you see).

If the signals do not match, the brain initiates the release of histamines. Histamines are chemicals released from the immune system and signal various parts of the body that something is wrong. In the case of motion sickness, the histamine triggers the vomit centre of the brain, causing sensations of nausea and inducing vomiting.

By blocking histamines, the vomit centre of the brain is unaware of the conflicting messages and so the sensation is prevented.

The recommended dose of Stugeron for adults is to take 2 tablets two hours before travelling and 1 tablet every eight hours during the journey if required.
