My family loves going on road trips. Well, me and the girls do, my husband I have to drag along. He’s just not a ‘sit in the car for a long time listening to kids screaming while your butt falls asleep’ type of dad. He’ll go and have fun once we get there but I secretly wish he would like to fly to the destination. One of the major reasons he doesn’t like to be in the car for long periods is because he gets motion sickness. It happens more when he is on a boat but if the car ride is more than 1 hour he starts to feel the symptoms creep up on him.
I am happy that Dramamine can help adults and children avoid feeling sick, whether traveling by boat, airplane, train or car.
What Is Motion Sickness?
I never realized that our 8-year-old could have motion sickness too. I honestly just chopped it up to maybe her coming down with a cold or being hungry. That’s the problem though, most people don’t understand what causes motion sickness and we end up taking the wrong medication. Instead, if you ever notice you experience nausea, vomiting, dizziness, or fatigue you should take Dramamine an hour before travel to prevent the symptoms of motion sickness.
Dramamine just launched a new website, RoadWarriorAlliance.com that provides advice for preventing and fighting motion sickness. Dr. Mark Savant, M.D., who leads a San Francisco-based medical practice focused on personal care and prevention, and Dramamine spokesperson Colleen Lanin, The Travel Mama, give you the tips you need to handle your motion sickness.
