Stugeron (Cinnarizine)

Valued customer; On this selected Product size, Canada Drugs Direct is currently faced with regional restrictions on the export of pharmaceuticals related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we have been forced to put a temporary maximum order limit of a 30-day supply on this product. To do our best to support you during this challenging time Canada Drugs Direct will be offering the following to customers placing medication orders:

  • An automatic free-year term upgrade on our standard $6.99 flat rate for shipping of purchases. You’ll now pay the same $6.99 rate, but you’ll be getting a YEAR of free shipping for it.
  • Frequent and timely follow-up calls from our Patient Support Team to ensure your refills are processed much earlier than they would be normally, and you do not run out of needed medication

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

Stugeron is a medicine that belongs to a wide class of drugs also known as antihistamines. Like any other antihistamine, Stugeron is known to block histamine receptors (these receptors are found in a lot of body sites, including the brain's vomiting centre). Therefore, Stugeron blocks the histamine receptors found in the patient's vomiting centre, preventing the brain from sending any nerve message that would regularly result in vomiting to the stomach. However, vomiting could be triggered by a lot of stimuli that act at the brain's vomiting centre. This also includes provocative movement (this is the case of Motion sickness in a boat or in a car) and vestibular (inner ear) disorders. This is why Stugeron has be designed not only to treat nausea, but also the vomiting that has been associated with other vestibular disorders (for example Meniere's disease) but also with Motion sickness.
Stugeron is a drug that is able to relieve some other symptoms of the inner ear (vestibular) disorder. These symptoms include tinnitus (also known as ringing in the ear) and vertigo, although it has not been clearly determined how Stugeron works in these cases.
The drug's peak (highest) plasma levels are regularly obtained from 1 to 3 hours after the medicine's intake. Stugeron is known to have a half-life of about 4 hours before it completely disappears from the patient's plasma.
Stugeron is a drug that is known to be completely metabolised. It is thought that 1/3 of the drug's metabolites should be eliminated through urination while the other two thirds through the faeces.
