Avomine Tablets 25mg can provide up to 24 hours relief in one dose and is generally well tolerated and can be used by children from 5 years.

This is what causes symptoms of motion sickness when travelling and leads to nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and vertigo (spinning sensations). In order to prevent this, you can take Avomine tablets one to two hours before travelling. If you are going to go for a longer journey, you should take Avomine tablets at bedtime, the day before starting out.
