How should I take dimenhydrinate?

Dimenhydrinate should always be taken as directed by a doctor or product labeling. Dimenhydrinate injections, which are usually administered in a medical office setting, may be given at home if directed by a doctor. Use injection formulas carefully and do not use the medication if the vial is damaged or the solution is discolored or contains particles. Do not reuse needles and dispose of materials properly. Dimenhydrinate tablets and oral solution should be taken as directed on product labels, but is usually taken 30 minutes before travel to prevent motion sickness.
