Cinnarizine is quite effective in treating diseases associated with imbalance inside the inner ear.
The inner ear consists of a vestibular apparatus that is responsible for ascertaining the position of the body. While travelling, when the head tilts and due to movement, there is an imbalance that arises in this vestibular apparatus. It then sends a signal to the brain which results in sensations such as dizziness, vomiting or spinning sensations.
Cinnarizine works by blocking the receptor cells in the brain from receiving this signal and thereby reducing symptoms such as vomiting, vertigo or dizziness.
You can chew, suck or swallow the Cinnarizine tablets. If you get an upset stomach on taking the tablets, take them with or after food.
