Each tablet of Gooday contains
Doxylamine Succinate........20 Mg
Pyridoxine HCl......20 mg
Doxylamine succinate in Gooday, provides the antinauseant and antiemetic activity. Studies have shown that Pyridoxine itself could have an antinauseant activity apart from being a effective supplement of vitamin B6 to prevent a possible pyridoxine deficiency during pregnancy. The onset of the antiemetic activity of Gooday is delayed by a special polymer coating of the tablet; a dose taken at night will be effective in the morning, the time when it is most needed.
Indications and Clinical Uses:

Gooday is not advisable during lactation since pyridoxine can inhibit breast milk secretion. Gooday should be co-administered with caution along with other central nervous depressants, alcohol, in epileptic and levodopa-treated Parkinson patients.
Due to risk of drowsiness, Gooday must be prescribed with caution to automobile drivers and machine operators.
Doxylamine succinate may cause drowsiness, vertigo, nervousness, epigastric pain, headache, palpitation, diarrhea, disorientation, irritability, convulsions, urinary retention or insomnia. Pyridoxine is a vitamin that is generally recognized as having no adverse effects.
