Avomine Tablets 25mg
Avomine is a medicine which helps to prevent, and helps to stop, travel sickness. It is believed that travel sickness is caused when the brain receives different messages from the eyes, the stomach and the ears which seem to be inconsistent or conflicting. As a result you feel sick (nausea) and may vomit. Avomine works on the brain by blocking those messages which make you feel sick and which cause vomiting.
Each tablet contains the active ingredient promethazine theoclate BP 25mg. The other ingredients used to make Avomine are lactose, sodium metabisulphite, potato starch, dextrin, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid and magnesium stearate.
Adults: Take one tablet each night at bedtime starting on the night before you travel.
Prevention of travel sickness on short journeys: Take one tablet one or two hours before travelling. If you forget to take a tablet, take one as soon as you remember.
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: One tablet each night is usually enough but two or more tablets may be required by some patients. These can be taken at intervals during the day, but it is unusual for more than 4 tablets to be needed in any 24 hour period.
Children over 10 years old: Give half the lower adult doses (one tablet) as described above
Children 5-10 years old: Give half a tablet at the same time as for adults
