Buclizine Uses

Buclizine is used in allergic conditions and motion sickness. It relieves allergic symptoms of nose, eyes and skin.

How Buclizine works

Buclizine is an antihistamine. It works by blocking the action of a chemical messenger (histamine). This helps treat various allergic conditions such as conjunctivitis and urticaria. This also stops the vomiting centre in the brain from receiving nerve messages that would otherwise cause motion sickness (nausea & light-headedness).
