- Dimenhydrinate Injection.
Dymenate is an antihistamine. It is used to prevent and treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness caused by motion sickness when medication cannot be given by mouth. It is most effective when given to prevent motion sickness rather than as a treatment for symptoms that have already started. It is not known exactly how it treats motion sickness. It is thought to work by blocking a certain natural substance and preventing its effects on the inner ear. The inner ear helps maintain your sense of balance and position. This medication is injected into a vein, or it can be injected into a muscle.
