Dramamine Non-Drowsy Naturals for Motion Sickness
Motion sickness is never fun to deal with whether you are an adult or a child. I have a 13 year old son who still deals with the effects of motion sickness from time to time. He has had it since he was 1 years old and he gets sick on planes, trains, cars, boats and roller coasters. We grew so accustomed to traveling with a bucket that it made it difficult for him to carpool with friends or go on a bus trip with his school.
Now that he is a little older we have Dramamine non drowsy naturals to keep his nausea at bay. Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals is Dramamine’s new first truly non-drowsy offering the following:
- Contains the clinically tested ginger dosage required for preventing and treating motion sickness. Other sources of ginger, including candies, gums, or ginger ale, may not contain a full clinical dose.
- Prevents and treats the symptoms of motion sickness (nausea and vomiting) without drowsiness.
- Non-Drowsy Naturals is safe to use every day you travel since it’s made from natural ginger.
If you have a child that has a hard time swallowing pills you can open the capsule and pour onto a spoon or into food or drink.
Here are 6 other ways to help curb motion sickness:
- Focus on a fixed point- Motion sickness occurs when the ways your brain and your inner ear perceive movement don’t match up. Your inner ear can sense that you’re moving, but if your eyes are focused inside the vehicle (on the dashboard, for example), they will send a signal to your brain that you aren’t moving
- Try accupressure-According to Chinese medicine, acupressure can balance the flow of energy in the body, or chi, and nausea is a sign of disharmony of chi.T
- Eat Ginger – This spicy root aids digestion, which quells nausea.
- Take Benadryl (antihistamine) – These drugs block the signals at some of the areas in the brain that control nausea and vomiting.
- Use a scopolamine patch – The patch, sold under the brand name Transderm Scōp, contains the drug scopolamine. Worn behind the ear, it works similarly to antihistamines—by interfering with the communication between nerves and the part of the brain that controls vomiting.
- Prescription Rizatriptan – The medication may fend off nausea by regulating serotonin, which is thought to be linked to migraine-related pain. Take the recommended dose about two hours before travel.
