HOW CINTIGO FORTE WORKS

CINTIGO FORTE is an antihistamine medicine with anti-motion sickness and vasodilating properties. It contains cinnarizine which is a Histamine (H1) receptor blocker. It reduces the unpleasant symptoms of motion sickness (such as nausea, dizziness, feeling sick or clampy) by blocking the release of certain chemicals (histamines) in the body that triggers an allergic response.

It also improves body balance by preventing the narrowing of blood vessels supplying the inner ear. It reduces the spasm of blood vessels and improves blood flow to the peripheral parts of the body. It also mediates the release of certain chemical messengers (dopamine and serotonin) in the brain that stabilizes the mental health.
