As well as the self help techniques highlighted on our advice page there are a number drugs available in the form of pills, injections and transdermal patches, to treat the symptoms of motion sickness including anticholinergics, antidopaminergics and antihistamines. These often need to be taken in advance of travelling and we would suggest seeking advice regarding any potential side effects such as drowsiness.
In addition, providers of medical devices such as acupressure bracelets and visors claim that they reduce motion sickness symptoms. Some also believe that eating ginger root helps, but there is little scientific evidence to support this, and the NHS recommends that, “Before taking ginger supplements, check with your GP that they won’t affect any other medication you’re taking.
So, while other remedies may help, many are not proven to work widely and the drug options come with potential complications….. which is why we are confident to describe TravelShades as the simple, instant, drug-free choice.
