Bonine is a drug used to prevent nausea, vomiting and motion sickness. It is also used for medical problems known to cause dizziness. Meclizine, an antihistamine, is the generic name for this medication. Bonine is available over-the-counter, without a doctor's prescription.


Bonine is not known to cause problems in breastfeeding infants. However, since this medication decreases moisture and bodily secretion, it can limit the amount of milk a breastfeeding mother is able to produce.

Anticholinergic Effects

Kids and older people have been known to show sensitivity to Bonine. They may have dryness in the mouth, nose and throat.

Central Nervous System

Taken with medications that affect the central nervous system, Bonine could exacerbate feelings of depression and fatigue. Bonine may also cause drowsiness and reduce alertness in some individuals.

Tricyclic Antidepressants

When taken with medications that treat depression, Bonine could increase the side effects of those other drugs. Elavil is one commonly prescribed tricyclic antidepressant.

Breathing Problems

In people who have existing breathing difficulties, Bonine may increase their symptoms. Patients with asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and lung disease should tell their doctors before taking Bonine.
