Based on pool base hit data from these clinical trials, the most normally reported ( > 1 % incidence ) Adverse Drug Reactions ( ADRs ) were : sleepiness ( 9.9 ), nausea ( 3.0 ) and increase weight ( 1.5 ) .
Including the above mentioned ADRs, the following ADRs have been observed from clinical trials and post-marketing experiences reported with the use of Stugeron. Frequencies displayed use the pursuit convention :
identical park ( ≥ 1/10 ) ; common ( ≥ 1/100 to < 1/10 ) ; uncommon ( ≥ 1/1,000 to < 1/100 ) ; rare ( ≥ 1/10,000 to < 1/1,000 ) ; very rare ( < 1/10,000 ), not known ( can not be estimated from the available data ) .

report of suspect adverse reactions
Reporting suspect adverse reactions after authority of the medicative intersection is authoritative. It allows proceed monitor of the benefit/risk poise of the medicative product. Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions via the Yellow Card Scheme at : or search for MHRA Yellow Card in the Google Play or Apple App Store .
4.9 Overdose Symptoms
The signs and symptoms are chiefly due to the anticholinergic ( atropine-like ) activity of cinnarizine .
Acute cinnarizine overdoses have been reported with doses ranging from 90 to 2,250 milligram. The most normally reported signs and symptoms associated with overdose of cinnarizine include : alterations in consciousness ranging from sleepiness to stupor and coma, vomiting, extrapyramidal symptoms, and hypotonia. In a little number of young children, seizures developed. clinical consequences were not severe in most cases, but deaths have been reported after single and polydrug overdoses involving cinnarizine .
There is no specific antidote. For any overdose, the treatment is symptomatic and supportive care .
It is advisable to contact a poison operate center to obtain the latest recommendations for the management of an overdose .
5. pharmacological properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties ATC Code N07CA02 .
Cinnarizine has been shown to be a non-competitive adversary of the smooth muscle contractions caused by diverse vasoactive agents including histamine .
Cinnarizine besides acts on vascular fluent muscle by selectively inhibiting the calcium inflow into depolarize cells, thereby reducing the handiness of dislodge Ca2+ ions for the initiation and maintenance of contraction .
vestibular eye reflexes induced by caloric stimulation of the inner ear in wop pigs are markedly depressed by cinnarizine .
Cinnarizine has been shown to inhibit nystagmus .
5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties In animals, cinnarizine is extensively metabolised, N-dealkylation being the major nerve pathway. approximately two thirds of the metabolites are excreted with the faeces, the rest in the urine, chiefly during the first gear five days after a individual dose .
In man, after oral administration, assimilation is relatively slow, flower serum concentrations occurring after 2.5 to 4 hours .
The plasma protein tie of cinnarizine is 91 % .
Cinnarizine is extensively metabolised chiefly via CYP2D6, but there is considerable interindividual variation in the extent of metabolism .
The reported elimination half life for cinnarizine ranges from 4 to 24 hours .
The elimination of metabolites occurs as follows : one third in the urine ( unaltered as metabolites and glucuronide conjugates ) and two thirds in the faeces .
5.3 preclinical safety data Nonclinical condom studies showed that effects were observed only after chronic exposures that were 10 – 160 times the recommend maximum daily homo acid of 100 mg/day calculated on a body open area basis, calculated as 2 mg/kg as based on a 50 kilogram person. Cinnarizine blocked the cardiac hERG duct in vitro, however in isolate cardiac tissue and following intravenous lotion in guinea-pigs, no QTc prolongation or proarrhythmic effects were observed at substantially higher exposures than those expected clinically .
In generative studies in the rotter, rabbit, and chase, there was no tell of adverse effects on richness and no teratogenicity. At senior high school doses associated with enate perniciousness in the denounce there was a decrease litter size, an increase in resorptions and a decrease in fetal birth weight .
In vitro mutagenicity studies indicated that the rear compound is not mutagenic however, after reacting with nitrite and forming the nitrosation product, a weak mutagenic activeness was observed. Carcinogenicity studies have not been conducted however, no pre-neoplastic changes were apparent during chronic 18-month oral administration in rats up to approximately 35 times the maximal human dose level .
