My doctor recommended it and then when I went to the pharmacy they gave me Dramamine. I thought they were the same until I used them and the effects of the dramamine were mild, I went and had my ear stringed, that gave me relief. I then later took the mezcilne and a note able difference. It does make me feel a little light headed , I am urinating a lot and a slight upset stomach.
I felel drowsy as well. All in all it is helping with the balance .

This product caused me many unwanted side effects. I often felt lightheaded, dizzy and nauseus upon waking. There were times it was difficult to move because of the side effects.
