Motion Sickness Cures

Going to a theme park with tons of rides? Or going sailing or on a cruise? Here’s a travel tip that we all hope to avoid, but is a reality for some…There’s several ways to combat motion sickness.

Preventative Measures

The best way to combat it is to take preventative measures before it hits you such as:
⚓️ Sea bands…not just for sea! You can get them at your local drug store. They need to be on for a few hours prior to motion in order to work effectively.
💊 Non drowsy dramamine. I like the natural version the best, personally.
👂 Motion sickness patch behind the ear. I’ve not personally tried this one, though.

What if it’s too late?

If you don’t have those options or deal with unexpected nausea in spite of taking precautions, here are some things you can try after it’s already started:
🥤Ginger Ale (sprite or 7 up will sometimes help in a pinch-carbonation without much flavor. It may be all you have access to in a theme park)
🍏 eat a green apple
🍬ginger candy
👃Peppermint oil, candy, basically anything. Even just the smell can help
❄️ Cool air or a cool washcloth/cooling towel on your face
💊 Medication – there are prescription anti nausea medications you may be able to get from your doctor to be prepared. If not, then sometimes a vitamin B6 or an antihistamine will help.

What remedies have you tried for motion sickness? Did they work?

I am a mom of 2 boys ages 11 and 14, and have been married to my wonderfully supportive husband, Brian for 14 years. I work full time in the billing department of a large opthamolgy practice in Michigan. I have not just a love for all things Disney that started from birth. My boys sometimes call it my Disney problem, but my husband and I fondly refer to it as my Disney passion. I have a side gig as a travel advisor. I can help plan almost any vacation, but as you can guess, I specialize in Disney and Universal.
