G. cyclizine. These act on H1 central receptors (as opposed to H2 gastric receptors). Cyclizine also has an anticholinergic action and causes tachycardia when given intravenously. g. atropine, hyoscine. These are non-polar so are able to cross the blood–brain barrier and act on muscarinic receptors in the vomiting centre and GI tract, reducing GI and salivary secretions and intestinal tone. They counteract motion and opiate-induced nausea and vomiting. Side effects include dry mouth, blurred vision and urinary retention.

5-HT3 receptors are present in the area postrema as well as the GI tract. Dizziness, headache and constipation are their main side effects. g. lorazepam, temazepam. They are used more commonly as prophylaxis in cancer chemotherapy, possibly acting as anxiolytics and reducing centrally mediated PONV pathways. g. nabilone.
