 5  Water sounds in ear and unbalanced No side effects Have had a feeling of water in my ear and unbalanced sensation like being on a small boat in rough seas. After 10 plus years of no other doctor finding a cure, within 1 week of taking this medication, my symptoms were gone. I have been extensively tested by 3 ENT Dr's since 2002 and no one could ID my problem. This worked! F 66 60 days

 5  Motion sickness I have tried over the counter products before for motion sickness. I was also prescribed for a long time promethazine syrup to take, which I did for many years. But, after having taken the promethazine syrup for so long, it eventually stopped being truly effective for me anymore. I had come to a plateau and needed to be prescribed something else. So, my doctor wrote me out a prescription for meclizine 25 mg chewable tablets for me to start taking. And, now, I just started taking that. If you are someone that suffers from motion sickness and the medications over the counter just don't work well enough for you, I highly recommend going to the doctor and having him prescribe something for you that really will work much better for you. I highly recommend the prescription meclizine tablets versus the over the counter stuff! It works a whole lot better. F 38 2 days

 5  Motion Sickness on a boat Not sure why, but coincidental that after I came home from my boat trip, I have been experiencing a sensitive tongue!!! Very weird, but my tongue is red, sore, tingily, and taste buds a little affected. Its been 3 days now and still symptoms. I think because I took chewed the swallable tablets, I had no water, so I just chewed them. My kids took it too, but they seem to be ok. I also gave a little to my grandson & seems like he acted excited at first, but then he was knocked out for 14 hours after. Scary...The medicine did work well!!! Wish I had it on the way to the island, we were vomiting. We took it as Dramamine Less Drowsy, but we did get drowsy alot later in the days, after taking 2 pills. F 44 1 days

 4  Motion sickness/Migraine/Vertigo Sleepiness, dizziness, and sometimes even nausea, but it almost always worked at relieving my nausea. I've always gotten motion sick easily, but about a year ago I began feeling off-balance all the time and started having migraines. I was having bad nausea almost daily. Meclizine saved my life. At 25mg/day to day and a half, I'm usually good. It does make me dizzy, especially if I take it before bed. It works better for me in the morning, but you do have to adjust to the tiredness. It would make me dizzy, but I didn't care about it because the nausea was gone. Occasionally, it seemed to make me sick, but I still use it when needed It also saved my life on a cruise when I got extremely motion sick. I could not hold down even a little water, and thought I was going to die. The ship gave me 50 mg and I was cured in 45 min. M 42 8 months

 5  vertigo, dizziness, spinning I didn't have any side effects that I can recall. I took it after I suffered a skull fracture, petrious ridge fracture & torn dura. I couldn't lie on my back or look up without a spinning feeling. The meclizine took it away as long as it took to heal. I'm now off it and healed. F 27 3 months

MECLIZINE HCL  (MECLIZINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Meclizine is an antihistamine that is used to prevent and treat nausea, vomiting, and dizziness caused by motion sickness. It may also be used to reduce dizziness and loss of balance (vertigo) caused by inner ear problems.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
