Bonine for Motion Sickness

Bonine® (meclizine hydrochloride) is an antihistamine medication that is available over the counter. It is approved to treat and prevent symptoms of motion sickness, such as nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.
 
Compared to many other medications used for motion sickness, Bonine lasts much longer and generally causes less drowsiness. Although this drug tends to work better when started before motion sickness symptoms occur, some relief will be felt even if Bonine is started after symptoms develop.
 
Bonine is approved for use in adults and children as young as 12 years old. It is not approved for use in younger children. Your child's healthcare provider can recommend a better treatment option for motion sickness if your child is under the age of 12.
