Background

Dimenhidrinato (dye" men hye' dri nate) is the 8-chlorotheophylline salt of diphenhydramine and, thus, combines a first generation antihistamine with a xanthine that is added to counteract the drowsiness caused by diphenhydramine. This combination was approved as an over-the-counter agent in 2004 and is used largely for prevention of motion sickness and nausea. Dimenhidrinato is available in multiple generic forms as tablets 25 or 50 mg or oral solutions, most of which are available without prescription, a common brand name being Dramamine. A liquid formulation for intramuscular use is also available. The typical adult oral dose is 50 mg taken an hour before expected travel and up to three or four times daily. Common side effects include sedation, impairment of motor function, confusion, dizziness, blurred vision, dry mouth and throat, palpitations, tachycardia, abdominal distress, constipation and headache. Antihistamines can worsen urinary retention and glaucoma.
