Cyclizine is used for nausea (feeling sick) or vomiting (being sick), caused by motion sickness, vertigo or Meniere's disease. It can also be used to treat nausea and vomiting caused by other medications. It works by blocking certain chemicals (histamines) in the brain that cause nausea and vomiting.
Cyclizine is available as an injection or as tablets (50 mg). In New Zealand, cyclizine tablets can be bought from a pharmacy without a prescription, after consultation with a pharmacist (pharmacist-only medicine).
