Uses of Stugeron Tablet

Benefits of Stugeron Tablet

In Treatment of Motion sickness

Motion sickness is a condition caused due to motion during travel. You may experience a spinning sensation (vertigo), nausea, or vomiting as a result of this condition. Stugeron Tablet helps treat these symptoms effectively. Take it as prescribed by the doctor to get maximum benefit.

In Treatment of Vertigo

Vertigo means a spinning sensation or dizziness that is triggered due to frequent movement. It can happen due to many reasons but it may also occur without any underlying disease. Stugeron Tablet helps treat this sensation effectively. If you feel dizzy while getting up from the bed, sit for a while, and then rise slowly to avoid having an accidental fall.

In Treatment of Meniere's disease

Stugeron Tablet helps in improving blood flow to the inner ear which reduces the pressure of excess fluid there. It is this pressure that is thought to cause the symptoms of nausea, vertigo (dizziness), tinnitus (ringing in your ears), and hearing loss in people who have Meniere’s disease. Stugeron Tablet makes the symptoms milder and reduces the number of times you get the symptoms. It will be more effective if you take this medicine regularly as prescribed so try not to miss doses. It may take a couple of weeks before you notice any improvements but keep taking it, even if you do feel better, until your doctor advises it is safe to stop.
