What should I avoid while taking dimenhydrinate?

While taking Dimenhydrinate, avoid taking MAOIs or sodium oxybate (GHB). You should also avoid drinking alcohol or taking medications that may cause drowsiness or have a sedative effect as this may increase the side effects of Dimenhydrinate. Avoid operating heavy machinery or driving until you know how your body responds to Dimenhydrinate. Avoid breast-feeding while taking Dimenhydrinate and discuss your situation with the doctor if you are planning to get pregnant or become pregnant while taking Dimenhydrinate
