Cinnarizine, derived from piperazine, is an antihistamine and calcium channel blocker. It may promote cerebral blood flow, and so is used to treat cerebral apoplexy, post-trauma cerebral symptoms, and cerebral arteriosclerosis. It is more commonly prescribed for nausea and vomiting due to motion sickness or other sources such as chemotherapy, vertigo and meniere's syndrome.
