Dimen, Dramamine (noun)

antihistamine and antiemetic (trade name Dramamine) used to treat motion sickness

What Is Dramamine (Dimen)?

Dramamine is the brand name of Dimen, anantihistamine that can be bought over-the-counter (OTC) to help prevent the symptoms of motion sickness, which range from nausea and vomiting to dizziness.

It is also used off-label to treat nausea and dizziness associated with inner ear conditions like Meniere's disease.

Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1949, the brand name Dramamine is marketed by Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc. It comes in tablet form but can also be bought as a liquid or chewable tablet.

At dosages of 800 to 1,250 milligrams (mg), Dramamine has been known to produce hallucinations. On the street it goes by the names dime, dime tabs, "D-Q," "substance D," "d-house," and "drams," and those abusing it often say they are dramatizing or going a dime a dozen, which is often considered the dosage necessary to produce the effect.

The medication has also been used as a sedative and/or to prevent vomiting and nausea in some pets.

Children under 2 years of age should not be given Dramamine unless directed to do so by a pediatrician.

If you are pregnant, do not take Dramamine unless your doctor prescribes it for you. The medication will pass into your breast milk so you should not breastfeed while using it.

It's very important that you not take Dramamine if there is any chance you might be allergic to it or to similar medications.

Never exceed the recommended dose or use this medication more often or for longer periods of time without first asking your doctor if it is okay to do so.

Dramamine is known to make you feel dizzy, and adding alcohol, very hot weather, exercise, or a fever into the mix, can make this effect worse. To help prevent dizziness, try not to jump up quickly after sitting or lying down, especially first thing in the morning. If you are feeling dizzy, try to sit or lie down right away.

If possible, avoid becoming overheated since you could have a heatstroke.

Don't combine Dramamine with other drugs that contain diphenhydramine. Read all the labels on your products, including skin products, to make sure they do not contain this ingredient or any antihistamines. If they do, or if you're unsure, contact your doctor.

If you are elderly you should be aware that you may be more sensitive to Dramamine's side effects, especially problems like dizziness, sedation, or feeling lightheaded when you stand.

To help your doctor decide if Dramamine is right for you, it's important that you give her/him a complete medical history.

Let your doctor know about any allergies to foods, medicines, or other substances.

Tell your physician if you have any of the following health conditions:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Shortness of breath
  • Lung disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Blockages in your stomach, intestines, or urinary tract
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Diabetes
  • Ulcers
  • Enlargement of the prostate
  • Glaucoma
  • Heart disease
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • High blood pressure
  • Thyroid disease along with a group of rare disorders called
