Travel Sickness.

Okay!<BR>Does anyone suffer from motion sickness? I sometimes do so if on a bus/plane for a long period of time. Anyone know the best way to prevent motion sickness? Any helpful hints would be much appreciated.<BR>By the way - will we be on the coaches for many hours (over 4)?<BR><BR>Thanks xo

    Hey there,
    I have used the non-drowsy Gravol, its main ingrediant is Ginger which is a natural antinauseant. This might help if you want to stay awake while on the bus. Also, there are many other brands with this same ingrediant.
    Hope that helps.

    not sure if this will work for motion sickness as well, but i did get a bit nauseus at plane landing time (and the whole blocked ear POPPING thing..) i found sniffing on one of those eucalyptus nose unblocking things worked really well and stopped the nausea- y’know like those plastic inhaler things) would not have been able to cope with out it. they only cost a couple of bucks and can fit anywhere!

    I think ‘sea bands’ are the way to go. They are bands you wear on your wrists and work on the pressure points. I get bad motion sickness and these are the only things that have worked for me and this inlcudes any form of tablet.

    I guess its finding what works best for you
