Meclizine is similar to Cyclizine and is OTC as Dramamine II (and generic), and you can use it "off label" -- with the side effects like Cogentin if you get to a full dose.


If you can stand it, and I dont particularly mind, a lot of macerated raw ginger does partially block 5HT3 (I had to do that the other week for a virus in my inner ear -- so we think)


And then there's Tigan, which has some but not all the pitfalls of Compazine, and does carry some but not all the risks of TD. But as ed says, its worse than a stiff upper lip, so the people across the pond say.


Some people are very sensitive to nausea with opiates -- myself I fortunately haven't had that. Its a problem with pain mediation.
