Arlevert 20mg/40mg Tablets

What is Arlevert?

Each Arlevert Tablet contains two active ingredients: cinnarizine 20mg and dimenhydrate 40mg.

Cinnarizine is classed as a “calcium channel blocker” and also as an antihistamine. Dimenhydrate is an antihistamine. Both of these medicines reduce feelings of nausea and vertigo, and the combination of both into one tablet is more effective than taking either one alone.

How to use Arlevert Tablets

It’s important to read the enclosed leaflet carefully before using Arlevert Tablets.

The dose for adults is one tablet three times a day, as required; to be swallowed whole without chewing with water, after meals. They are recommended to be used for up to 4 weeks.

Are Arlevert Tablets suitable for me?

There are some situations where Arlevert Tablets, like all medicines, should be used with caution or would not be recommended, for example in people under 18, people with liver or kidney problems, certain types of glaucoma, convulsions, suspicion of raised intracranial pressure, alcohol abuse, enlarged prostate gland, high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, Parkinson’s disease, severe coronary heart disease, some urinary problems where urine is retained in the bladder, and people who are allergic to any of the active or inactive ingredients.

During your consultation, it is important to tell us if you are taking any other medicines, either from your doctor or purchased from a pharmacy without a prescription. Arlevert Tablets can cause problems if taken with alcohol, or with certain other medicines, including blood pressure medicines, tricyclic antidepressants, and other medicines that can cause drowsiness such as some painkillers.

You should not use Arlevert Tablets if you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, or are breast-feeding or planning to breast-feed.

If it doesn’t work for you, tell the doctor because a different treatment might be better.

It’s very important to give a full picture of your general health in the consultation, to make sure the doctor has all the information required to assess the suitability of Arlevert Tablets for you.
