“I've been taking meclizine for over 20 years now. I was given it orignally by my doctor to help with the dizziness and vertigo I would get from my hypoglycemia. It works well but for me it takes about 1 hour to kick in. Sometimes it takes the dizziness completely away, other times it takes the edge off so I can at least function. As far as I know meclizine is the only drug out there for dizziness. Makes me tired but I'll take being tired over dizzy any day.”

Bonine (meclizine) for Motion Sickness: “I went on a 4 day, 3 night cruise with my identical twin. Both of us had previously taken Dramamine but neither of us liked it due to the sleepiness. She bought some Bonine while I had my doctor write me a prescription for the back-ear sticker. Both of us took our medicines 12 hours before getting on our plane. I got tired while she enjoyed poking me and making fun. The back ear patch didnt work, because I got sick with in minutes of being on the ship. My sister forced me to take the patch off and made me take the Bonine. We had a great trip. We swear by Bonine and our family and friends love it too. ”

For Motion Sickness: “I have taken regular Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) & now Dramamine II (meclizine). Both are great products. I have no side effects except for slight dry mouth/nostrils, but this is a condition I am prone to without taking meclizine. ”

For Vertigo: “I was prescribed Meclizine because I was so dizzy I couldn't even sit, now after taking it for 4 days it's starting to get a lot better. They don't know the cause of my dizziness, all they know is it has to do with my nervous system. While we are waiting to have a lot of tests done they put me on this. The only problem I have is it puts me to sleep and knocks me out. But it affects everybody differently.”

For Vertigo: “I had been diagnosed with Meneire's disease and unfortunately one of the side problems associated with it is vertigo. I take meclizine every day as a preventative and have been vertigo free on all the days I've taken it. On the days I don't take it, there's generally a 75% chance that the vertigo will come back hard.”

“I was Diagnosed with Vertigo and was prescribed Meclizine 25 mg to take 3 times a day. I am not dizzy as before and feel much better. I did not have bad side effects, only dry mouth and tired. However, I did not drive a vehicle while taking the drug nor did I use machinery. I cannot tell you how that would work in conjunction with the drug.”
