Avomine 25mg Tablets

Avomine 25mg Tablets help to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting, including travel sickness and vertigo. It is an anti-emetic (anti-sickness drug) containing promethazine and is available over the counter, or may be prescribed by your doctor for giddiness or light-headedness (vertigo), or for sickness after an operation.
Adults
  • For the prevention of travel sickness on long journeys: Take one tablet each night at bedtime starting the night before you travel.
  • For the prevention of travel sickness on short journeys:  Take one tablet one or two hours before travelling.
  • Treatment of travel sickness: Take one tablet as soon as you feel sick followed by a second tablet the same evening. Take a third tablet the next evening if necessary.
  • Nausea and vomiting due to other causes: Taking one tablet each night is usually enough, but two or three tablets may be required by some patients. These can be taken at intervals during the day, but it is often not necessary for more than 4 tablets to be needed in any 24 hour period.
