But, beware of side-effects
Drowsiness is a common side effect of motion sickness drugs. Driving, steering, or flying to your destination after taking a dose is definitely not advisable.
In fact, these drugs can have other undesirable side-effects. It’s a good idea to discuss the pros and cons with your doctor and try out the medication before travelling so you can gauge any ill effects – especially in children.
Motion sickness that starts after the teenage years may indicate some type of inner ear disorder. It could also be caused by a pre-existing migraine condition or, more rarely, may indicate something more serious.
(People who experience motion sickness are more prone to migraine headaches. For some sufferers, getting treatment for the headaches may help reduce the impact of motion sickness.)
See your doctor if your motion sickness is severe and persists, despite taking medication or trying the other measures mentioned.
We hope these tips help you combat seasickness on your maiden voyage. All the best!
