Scopolamine vs meclizine

Common Questions and Answers about Scopolamine vs meclizine


Avatar n tn Hi Gina, It is definitely from the scopolamine. I have been on 16 cruises and everytime I have stopped the scopolamine I have the same symptoms of extreme fatigue. The first 24 hours after I stopped the medication there was no problem, but when I awoke the next day I was really out of it. I do not suffere from the nausea or headache that you have encountered. It usually subsides after about 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn If you do not have any of these symptoms, I would very much question the diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis. The spinal tap may be of some help. As for the dizziness, besides meclizine, scopolamine patch could be helpful (also better for peripheral) and vestibular physical therapy offered at some facilities. You could also try getting a second opinion at a dizzy clinic. If you are in the area, Dr. Oas here at the clinic would be happy to see you in our dizzy clinic. Best of luck.
648910 tn?1290666683 meclizine, sold OTC--as Ren pointed out--as Bonine, also Dramamine Less Drowsy Formula). Most people don't seem to get much help from it, though. (This is my nonscientific conclusion from years of reading a dizziness list.) Antivert did nothing for me. (But don't minimize the dangers of sneezing... that's exactly how I lost the hearing in my left ear and got a big increase in my dizziness at the same time!! I'm not kidding!!) If meclizine doesn't work for you, maybe Valium would?
405614 tn?1329147714 Wow, where to start on this gaggle of giddiness? I became dizzy reading this thread. I've found, though, that docs don't like the term "dizzy." It can mean too many things. Super neuro seemed impressed when I used terms like "loss of balance," "unexplained sensation of motion," vs. "faint," or "lightheaded" (a term I'm not sure I could define). I've tried meclizine, xanax, scopolamine, and now clonazepam.
