Road Warrior Alliance

Dramamine Logo
We are avid travelers in this family. We take cruises. We get on planes. We  go on lots of road trips. And this summer we even took a few trains.
Now with that train ride this year, I was especially glad that I had my Dramamine with me. It was a three hour train ride where I had to ride backwards and I hated it. It was an odd feeling to see the countryside in the opposite way which I had become accustomed. Once I took Dramamine, I felt much better.
The motion sickness was gone. I should have taken it before I even got on the train but now I know better.
This summer I’m participating in the Dramamine® Road Warrior Alliance program. This program will help to educate about the causes, prevention, and treatment of motion sickness.  With so many people being affected by motion sickness each year, many have no clue that is what they are experiencing and/or they don't know how to deal with it. The Dramamine® RoadWarrior Alliance site can be your your resource as a traveler if you or someone you know if suffering from motion sickness.  You will also find a place to request your own free sample of Dramamine® plus expert travel tips.

ABOUT MOTION SICKNESS

Do you know what motion sickness is? Some people may experience it but have no idea what they are going through. This happened to our neighbors on a recent cruise. She thought she had the flu but once I gave her Dramamine, she was instantly better and able to carryon with her vacation. I seriously have Dramamine (several varieties) in my vacation kit every single time I travel. I don't leave home without it.
Here is what the Road Warrior Alliance site from Dramamine says about Motion Sickness:
Motion sickness, a common condition that affects millions of people, can put a damper on travel plans. It can occur during car, plane, train or boat travel (and even when watching a movie or playing video games).

It’s caused when the brain receives conflicting messages from the body's equilibrium senses. Your inner ear, vision and sensory nerves keep you balanced most of the time, but if one senses motion and another doesn’t, your brain gets a mixed message and motion sickness may set in. For example, if you are a passenger in a moving car, your inner ear may sense the motion while your eyes don’t see movement, and as a result, you may start to feel sick. Symptoms of motion sickness include nausea, vomiting and dizziness.

Anyone can get motion sickness, but children 2 to 12 years old, women and the elderly are affected the most.

For me, I tend to break out in a cold sweat and get dizzy. I rarely vomit but I know that it is motion sickness just the same.

HOW TO HANDLE MOTION SICKNESS

We take Dramamine before we even get on a ship or a plane or even a train now. I would rather head off an unpleasant motion sickness than try to deal with it once it happens.

Over-the-counter motion sickness medications such as Dramamine are most effective when taken as a preventative measure. However, taking Dramamine after motion sickness has already started can help lessen the severity of some of the symptoms. Passengers may be able to reduce the feeling of queasiness by sitting or lying down in an area that appears to move the least. Other ways to help ease motion sickness symptoms once they start is to consume fluids and get exposure to fresh air.

Have you ever experienced motion sickness? If so, how did you handle it?

    We don’t have a vacation planned anytime in the future. We can’t afford it and we are both seriously injured from doing manual labor for too long. Sad but true. We could take a staycation though and take our son to the zoo.
