Cyclizine is sold in Denmark as an over-the-counter drug and has serious side effects when overdosed
Cyclizine is sold in Denmark as an over-the-counter drug and affects not only histaminergic but also muscarinergic, serotonergic and α-adrenergic receptors, with side effects such as respiratory depression and cardiac arrhythmias, leading to fatalities.

Data of healthcare contacts because of cyclizine intoxication in the 2014-2016 period should be analyzed to further illuminate the health risk of cyclizine poisoning.
