Motion Sickeness

Motion sickness manifests itself in a variety of ways from mild discomfort to severe nausea and vomiting. Yawning, deep rapid breathing, cold sweats, salivating, pallor and sudden drowsiness can signal its onset. To reduce the likelihood of motion sickness, you may want to:

  • sit over the wing area on an airplane
  • stay on the open deck of a ship as much as possible
  • sit in the front seat of an automobile
  • avoid reading while in motion
  • focus your gaze on the horizon or a fixed spot
  • take motion sickness remedies 1/2 hour before you travel and again every four to six hours while traveling following the package directions.
