car sickness remedies

I totally get car sick, especially after one hour of driving, windy roads or terrible drivers. Someone recommended ginger chews and they help a lot. I have been suffering from this for years btw. definitely helps.

Motion sickness generally occurs when your eyes and your body are sending different signals--i. e., your eyes are seeing a stable page and your body is feeling curves and twists. (Yours, OP, sounds worse than this). So part of the trick is to make sure that your eyes are seeing imagery that matches what your body is feeling. Looking out the front of the car helps; closing your eyes helps (though impossible when driving).

My parents kept a little travel-sized shaker of salt in the jockeybox. A little salt on the back of the tongue helped keep my sisters from puking every ten minutes...and helped me if I had my nose in a book too long.

for adults very dark glasses might do the trick. For kids, you might try and cover the window so they can't see and drive at night. Seriously. You can make it better, but you can't get rid of it totally.

you might want to try Dramamine or Meclizine.

I don't think children can take them. You would want to check the label or check with a pharmacist. The OP wasn't a child, though, right?
