Avomine tablets product information

Avomine contains an active ingredient called Promethazine which is an anti-sickness medicine. It prevents or relieves the symptoms of travel sickness.

It may be used by those who cannot tolerate Hyoscine (Scopoderm, Kwells) due to its side effects.


How to use

A tablet can be taken 1-2 hours up to the night before before your journey, and another tablet can be taken if necessary as soon as you feel sick. 

Do not take Avomine for more than 7 days.



Side effects of Avomine

Like all medicines, Avomine can cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.

The most common side effects associated are: dryness of the mouth, drowsiness, dizziness and blurring of vision. These side effects are usually mild but if they trouble you, you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice. It is also important that you avoid driving or operating machinery should dizziness occurs.

If you experience these uncommon but serious side effects, you should stop using Avomine and seek urgent medical advice:

  • Signs of allergic reaction: difficulty breathing, swelling of eyes, lips or face and severe itching of the skin
  • Irregular heart beats or low blood pressure (dizziness when standing up)


The full list of side effects can be found on the patient information leaflet.
