INTRODUCTION

DILIGAN 25MG contains Meclizine which belongs to the group of medicines called Antihistamine/Antiemetic agents. It is used to prevent and provide relief from nausea, dizziness and vomiting associated with motion sickness (illness caused by motion during travel). It is also used to treat vertigo (condition where a person experiences sensation of spinning movement or of surrounding objects moving when they are still in the same position) associated with diseases affecting the vestibular system in adults.

Meclizine works by suppressing vestibular stimulation by controlling the activity of hair cells in the inner ear and therefore helpful in treating vertigo symptoms like dizziness and spinning sensation. It also reduces the activity of central nervous system (by anticholinergic effect) and reduces symptoms like nausea and vomiting sensation associated with motion sickness.

DILIGAN 25MG should be used with caution in patients with asthma, liver, or kidney disease, glaucoma and enlarged prostate gland. Contact your doctor before taking it. Before taking DILIGAN 25MG inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. DILIGAN 25MG is not recommended for use in children (under 12 years of age) and should be used with caution in elderly patients (above 65 years of age). Contact your doctor before taking it. Avoid consumption of alcohol during treatment with DILIGAN 25MG as it may increase the risk of unwanted effects. The most common side effects of taking DILIGAN 25MG are drowsiness, headache, fatigue, dry mouth and vomiting. Contact your physician if any of the symptoms worsen.
