A K-Mart pharmacist told me there is NO difference but I thought I'd ask the experts here on this board!
Bonine and Anti-vert are the brand names for meclizine.I thought so and this pharmacist told me that Bonine and Dramamine have the same ingredient (meclizine) in it. What does a pharmacist know!!
Dramamine is the brand name for dimenhydrinate.
There are 2 types of Dramamine: Original Dramamine and Dramamine II Less Drowsy Formula. Original is dimenhydrinate, a close cousin to Benadryl, while Dramamine II is meclizine, the excat same as Bonine, which the KMart pharmacist may have been referring to. In my area, Dramamine II is alot cheaper than the Bonine.Thanks for the explanation KMart Pharmacist!
