Active ingredient


Dimenhydrinate is a theoclate salt of the ethanolamine derivative diphenhydramine. It exhibits reversible competitive antagonism with histamine for the capture of H1 receptors. It has anticholinergic (antimuscarinic) properties that explain the anti-emetic action of the drug in cases of labyrinthial irritation (nausea, vertigo), and the central suppression it causes.
