Other Comments

Cyclizine used for prevention of motion sickness should be administered 30 minutes prior to travel and continued for the duration of exposure.

Because of the anticholinergic action of this agent, use with caution and with appropriate monitoring in patients with glaucoma, obstructive disease of the GI or GU tract and in elderly males with possible prostatic hypertrophy. This drug may have a hypotensive action, which may be confusing or dangerous in postoperative patients.
