Stugeron is a trade name, main ingredient Cinnarizine.
Below are info pages and sources for it. The drug has not been thoroughly tested and should be considered to have severe side effects. It is not available in the US, because of this.Outside the US I think it is available OTC.

I have dug around in dogpile.com searching on: "SEASICKNESS", "MOTION SICKNESS", "MECLIZINE" and "STUGERON". There are hundreds of listings. I have tried to include the ones I thought were important, not because I could endorse them but because their information was a real contribution to the subject. Most of what is out there is "Rubbish".
