How does Avomine work?
Avomine medicine (Antihistamine) is an active ingredient known as promethazine teoclate. It is used to prevent nausea, vertigo, post operative vomiting, and travel sickness. Various receptors in the brain are blocked by Antihistamine preventing the body from vomiting, feeling sickness, and halt a vomiting reflex. To prevent sickness on short journeys Avomine tablets need to be taken at least one or two hours before travelling. For long journeys one 25mg Avomine tablet must be taken 12 hours before travelling. For Nausea and vomiting due to other causes Doctors recommend One 25mg tablet at night is often sufficient, but two or three tablets are sometimes necessary to prevent symptoms. Alternatively, more frequent administration such as 25mg two or three times a day may be required for some patients. It is often not necessary to give more than four of the 25mg Avomine Tablets in 24 hours
