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.

can children take those meds?

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?

My husband and I took a friend's little girl out last weekend (3 years old). About 20 minutes into our drive, the little girl was vomiting everywhere! I cleaned her up, took the headrest off of my seat (passenger side) and sat in the back with her. I told her to look out the front window and watch the car in front of us. She was totally fine after that and even started laughing in relief. Focusing on something in the distance helps, driving at night also helps. I would probably suggest tinting the windows (at least in the back). Just say no to reading or focusing on anything inside the car. Also, if the person's old enough, have them sit in the front seat.
Good luck! I feel for you!

I've had car sickness for years, too. In fact, I think it is getting worse as I get older. Has anyone tried those wristbands? I read somewhere that they work, but have yet to meet someone who has tried them. My mom used to give me pieces of Dramamine pills as a kid, but they still knocked me out for hours.

I heard those wristbands work.
