When you travel at a speed faster than your body can walk the brain gets mixed messages from the inner ear sensing no motion and the eyes seeing movement. As a result of the confusion the nausea part of the brain is triggered causing you to feel nauseous, vomit, weak and pallor during travel. Avomine is an effective treatment to combat travel sickness symptoms, making journeys by many means of transportation more comfortable.
This medicine belongs to a group of drugs called antihistamines. Antihistamines medicines are used to treat allergic disorders and some other conditions.

Travel sickness is caused when the visual messages sent to the brain contradict the balance perceptions from the inner ear. This can lead to vomiting or feelings of nausea and drowsiness. By taking an anti-emetic medication such as promethazine before travelling, certain messages from the brain are blocked, making it extremely unlikely that you will suffer from sickness.
The active ingredient in Avomine is promethazine teoclate which is an antihistamine. It works by stopping histamine from binding to the vomiting center, which is known to cause travel sickness symptoms.
Avomine should be taken at least 2 hours before your journey as motion sickness affects digestion and it may not be as effective if taken once the symptoms have already presented themselves. The medication should not be mixed with alcohol, as this will increase the feeling of drowsiness. In addition, promethazine can cause some people to be more sensitive to the effects of the sun, so try and stay in the shade and remain hydrated throughout your journey. You should not take Avamine with any other histamine, alcohol or sedatives to avoid drowsiness.

The most common side effects include headaches, drowsiness, digestive problems (constipation or diarrhoea) and difficulty sleeping. If these symptoms persist, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
