Apo Dimenhydrinate 

Indication

Dimenhydrinate belongs to a group of medications called antiemetics. Apo Dimenhydrinate is used to prevent and treat Motion Sickness as well as nausea and vomiting associated with various conditions such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. It is also used to treat nausea and spinning sensations (Vertigo) due to Ménière's disease and other conditions that cause these symptoms.

Dimenhydrinate works to relieve or prevent nausea and vomiting by affecting the vomiting centre in the brain. Most people can expect some relief of nausea and vomiting within one hour of taking any form of dimenhydrinate. It works to relieve vertigo by affecting the brain and the inner ear.

Apo Dimenhydrinate may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Apo Dimenhydrinate may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Apo Dimenhydrinate may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Apo Dimenhydrinate for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are using Apo Dimenhydrinate, speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Apo Dimenhydrinate without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Apo Dimenhydrinate to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Apo Dimenhydrinate if their doctor has not prescribed it.
