Prochlorperazine Maleate Tablets– VOMITAN-5 MD contains a medicine called Prochlorperazine Maleate. This medicine blocks the action of dopamine, a chemical in the brain that causes nausea and vomiting. This is why Prochlorperazine Maleate is an antiemetic, which means it stops nausea and vomiting. Prochlorperazine Maleate also suppresses the vestibular apparatus in the inner ear. This is the part of the ear that helps us balance. When this is suppressed, it can stop vertigo, which is a feeling of dizziness or spinning.
