... know who's selling it and how to buy it?
cyclizine (brand name Marezine) is a very good anti- nausea agent and for motion sickness. It is otc at Wal Mart and HEB. As a pharmacist, I knew it was a good product, but few people even knew or heard of it. Technically, brand name products of Bonine or Antivert are very close relatives of cyclizine and are meclizine, not cyclizine. Both are very good products. guyairey
They are no longer manufacturing Marezine. I used for 30 years with wonderful results, no sickness & especially doesn't put me to sleep like meclizine or Dramamine. There is another product called Cyclivert but can only be found in England. Problem is they don't ship to UNited States.
Cyclizine is available in the UK, and you can get it by mail order through The Independent Pharmacy (theindependentpharmacy.co.uk). You do not have to be a UK resident, but they will only send it to a UK address. In my case I happened to be in London on a trip, so I had them send it to my hotel, which worked perfectly. It was a little tricky to pay, but I was able to use my U.S. credit card, giving my London hotel as a billing address. (It may be that this only worked because of a previous conversation with my bank about using my card for online ordering at UK sites.)
Of course this only helps you if you have some way to have a UK address. Perhaps there are parcel forwarding services or something like that.
I think this procedure is entirely legal. Cyclizine is OTC in the U.S., even though it is not being made, so there is no reason that it cannot be brought here. As it happens, my baggage was selected to be searched by customs on the way into the U.S., and the inspector saw the cyclizine, but he had no comment about it.
