Drug Class and Mechanism
DRAMAMINE falls under antihistamine and anticholinergic and it works in the brain by decreasing nausea, vomiting, and dizziness.
Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule.
Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.
Store DRAMAMINE at room temperature between 68 and 77 degrees F(20 and 25 degrees C). Always keep it in a cool dark place that is not directly exposed to sources of heat or moisture and sunlight. Protect it from kids and pets.
Doctors advise against using DRAMAMINE if you are allergic to any ingredient in it.
Discuss your past/current medical history in detail with your doctor before beginning treatment with any new medication. If you are using any herbal supplements or over the counter medication, including vitamin pills, then mention it to your doctor.
Your condition might be monitored or the dosage might be modified to suit you if you are taking sodium oxybate (GHB); or have taken a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor (e.g., phenelzine) in the past 14 days.
DRAMAMINE should not be taken by children below 2 years of age.
If you are expecting a child or are planning to have a child in the near future, then consult your doctor before using DRAMAMINE to discuss any possible threats to the unborn baby.
If you are a nursing mother and breast feed your baby, then too, seek consultation before using DRAMAMINE as it is excreted in the breast milk and may enter the baby.
