How Avomine works

Avomine contains Promethazine, which is an antihistamine. Its qualities as an antihistamine means that it has the ability to prevent particular chemicals that form part of the body's immune responses, from influencing particular receptors in the brain. These receptors are also what can trigger symptoms such as nausea or vomiting. By blocking these receptors, messages from the vestibular system can't be relayed and therefore you won't start to experience all the usual uncomfortable symptoms that result from travel by sea, air or plane, if you are prone to them.

Patients who can use Avomine

Avomine is a safe treatment that can be taken by most patients, however there are some precautions. When taking it you should avoid operating heavy machinery and your ability to drive safely may be inhibited slightly. It's also not advised to continue taking this treatment for longer than seven days at a time without speaking to your doctor. You should also be aware that promethazine can influence the results of pregnancy tests, resulting in either a false positive or negative.

How to take Avomine

Avomine is ideal to use for long journeys as well as journeys that are shorter than seven days. To ensure that it works as a preventative, you should start taking it a day before you travel, if your journey is going to last a few days. However, if your journey isn't likely to last more than a few hours, you can simply take the tablet an hour or two before you travel. If you didn't have time to prepare and you are taking this to alleviate symptoms that have already started then you should take a tablet as soon as possible, a second tablet that evening and a third the following evening, although this will be dependent on the duration of your trip and you may not need to take more than one tablet.

The side effects

Most medications carry with them, to a greater or lesser extent, a risk of side effects. In the case of Avomine, the risk is extremely low and even if side effects do occur they are normally very mild and may include a feeling of drowsiness, blurred vision, a dry mouth, a loss of appetite, headaches and a drop in blood pressure. If any of the side affects you experience concern you, or you experience anything serious, medical help should be sought.

How to buy online

We understand that planning for trips can be hectic, which is why we provide patients with the opportunity to order their medications safely online. This means that you can complete a confidential consultation online and have your treatment shipped directly to your door. All consultations are checked by a qualified doctor and treatments are dispensed by a registered pharmacist. There is no charge for the consultation or shipping, so if your order is not approved, no charge will be made to your account. We have 3 travel sickness medications available, Avomine, scopoderm and kwells if you are looking for a different treatment.

What is included in the online consultation?

Our consultations include general questions about your health (e.g. blood pressure levels, current and past conditions), as well as specific questions related to your selected treatment. We will also request relevant personal information to complete payment and delivery.

All questions are necessary, and your answers and details will not be shared with any third-parties. Only our doctors have access to your medical information.

Will a doctor review my consultation?

It is a legal and medical requirement that a doctor first reviews all completed consultations. We have a team of in-house doctors and specialists who will ensure your selected treatment is safe for your use. All information is stored securely and confidentially.

Please note, we do not guarantee that our doctors will approve treatment.

What happens after I submit my order?

Your consultation will be sent directly to our medical team, where it will be reviewed by one of our doctors.

If your chosen treatment is deemed suitable for your use, they will issue a prescription. Your prescription is then forwarded to our pharmacy, where your medication will be dispensed and dispatched for courier delivery.

Is the price all-inclusive?

Yes. All 121doc orders include a medical consultation, a prescription and next-day delivery. There are no additional costs. We believe in providing a safe and easy-to-use service.

Can I place more than one order at a time?

Yes. However, certain medications may negatively interact with each other. Our doctors may not approve your order on this basis.

You can place multiple items in one basket, and complete a consultation for all.

If you wish to place a second order for a different medication, you will have to complete a separate consultation.

What are my delivery options?

We offer several delivery options:

  • Next-day delivery
  • UPS Access Point - convenient parcel drop-off and collection near your home or work address
  • Nominated-day delivery - choose the most convenient day for delivery

All these options can be tracked and require a signature on delivery. If you are not available, a friend or relative can sign in your place.

None of these options will incur an additional charge.

Is it safe to buy prescription medication online?

To ensure you are purchasing from a reputable company, you should look to see their country’s regulatory bodies verify them.

In the UK, this is the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Certificates can be viewed here.

How do I know which treatment is best for me?

Some treatments also offer the 'Advise Me' function. You will be asked questions about your lifestyle and needs, plus medical questions. You will then be presented with the advice of our doctors.

Is this service discreet?

Our patients’ privacy is of utmost importance. All your medical information is securely stored and only viewed by our doctors. We do not share your details with third-parties. We are also regularly inspected by various UK regulatory agencies, such as the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

All orders will only show on invoices, bank statements, etc. as ‘HHC Ltd’.
